Hosting provider UKFast is opening up its campus to children over the summer holiday to help them learn the basics of coding.
UKFast's Manchester base will play host to hundreds of kids throughout August, claiming the scheme will help breed the next generation of tech experts.
Gail Jones, UKFast's managing director UKFast, said: "It's fantastic for us to be able to open up our campus this summer for the Greater Manchester community. The Code Clubs have always been popular with young people and their parents, and are a great way to get young people interested in tech and coding.
"Running a Code Club is such an energising experience. It means we are getting more kids in here and helping to create the next generation of tech experts, as well as giving opportunities to have fun and learn new things. It's another way of being proactive in order to meet the digital skills gap we hear so much about, all while giving parents a well-earned break.
"From the point of view of our team at UKFast, Code Clubs allow people from different departments to get involved and it gives people another platform to interact with and develop themselves."
UKFast's Code Clubs teach children about areas including coding, consumer science, servers, data transfer and networking.
