Money from the £500,000 fund will be offered to businesses, hoping to attract industry experts who are willing to match the funding and train teachers to help them to teach children in primary and secondary education how to code.

"Half a million pounds has been pledged by the government to train up more than 170,000 primary and secondary teachers".
Code is the language we use to instruct computers.
We use code to build websites and apps, design clothes, publish books, make games and music, and to get the most from technology.
Getting to know code is really important. It means you can be creative with computers, start your own business or boost your earning potential. It is really simple to learn and anyone can do it - not just rocket scientists.
