The rollout of Code Club across primary schools in Tasmania, supported by the Hodgman Liberal Government, is giving our students the chance to gain real skills for real jobs in our ICT sector. Today I congratulated Code Club Australia on the registration of the 1000th Tasmanian student.

Coding is now regarded as an essential skill and computer programming is a fundamental literacy for future employment.

The Liberal Government’s number one priority is creating jobs and giving students digital skills like coding sets us up to attract businesses and grow the economy.
Across the state there are 1000 excited and enthusiastic Tasmanian children participating on a weekly basis with the help of countless teachers and volunteers shaping their futures.

Code Club Australia is a nationwide network of free, volunteer-led, after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11.

Earlier this year Tasmania became the first state to partner with Code Club for a statewide rollout across all primary schools.

The need for digital skills is continuing to grow. Increasingly, every company is a digital company and almost every job is a digital job.

The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to growing a connected and empowered economy. To that end we encourage Tasmanian government and non-government schools to consider offering Code Club to their students.
