Apple will teach you to code for FREE – how to register for beginner sessions near you

LEARNING to code can make you a millionaire – and Apple will teach you how to do it for free.

The Californian iPhone giant offers no-cost coding sessions at your local Apple Store, and even total beginners can get involved.

Apple offers a range of lessons through its Today at Apple programme at its retail stores.

These include sessions that teach you basic and advanced coding skills.

As part of Computer Science Education Week, Apple is ramping up the number of coding sessions between December 1 and 15.

The tech giant says there will be "thousands of opportunities" to learn to code over the fortnight.

"Sessions help aspiring coders explore block-based coding with robots," Apple explains.

"While those with more experience can get started using Swift Playgrounds to learn coding concepts or code an augmented reality experience."

Coding can be a fun hobby that can help you build fun apps or games in your own home.

But it can also be a route into a lucrative career.

PayScale reports the average salary for software engineers in Britain as £34,841 per year – but more senior roles can offer significantly more.

If you'd rather learn to code from home, Apple also offers a free app that uses a game to teach you.

It's called Swift Playgrounds, which you can download for the iPad here.

You can also coding classes and other useful Today at Apple lessons at your local Apple Store here (UK) or here (US).

Each session typically lasts around one hour, and Apple will supply you with the gadgets you need – although you can bring your own iPad along if you prefer.
