Your website is more than just a place to offer your products and services. It should be an enjoyable and easy experience for a user as a place to showcase your work and the passion and personality behind your brand and business.
A functional and professional, user-friendly website for your business is crucial. With websites being accessible by so many other platforms, it’s key that your site is both desktop and mobile-ready. We want to help you ensure that your website not only works well but looks great too.
What We Do:
Our WordPress course will introduce you to the industry basics of web design and how to create your own accessible website. Our expert tutors with years of first-hand experience in web design will show you how to use the tools in WordPress and how to embed graphics. Our hands-on, step by step guide is a great way to learn the basics without too much jargon. You’ll also have the opportunity to network and connect with other local businesses.
What We Cover:
At the start of the course, you will have a blank website ready-made for you to experiment and learn on, so don’t worry if you don’t have an existing WordPress site. With the support of our tutors you will:
- Learn how to create a blog
- Add a social media feed into your website.
- How to create an individual website page
- How to implement and use different templates
- How to personalise your website to reflect your brand using colour, headers, fonts and styles
- How to embed alt text (which is important!)
- How to meet GDPR criteria on your website
- Creating and navigating a web menu
- Ensure your website works across a variety of devices
