Website Designer

Learn about web servers, hosting, content management systems and web programming as you create your own website

Ever wondered how professional web designers work?  They need to know some technical details like HTML and CSS but it's much quicker if you start with a CMS (Content Management System) and customise it to look and act exactly how you want.  During this quick-fire course, you'll learn about web hosting, cloud server setup, CPanel, Wordpress, templates, HTML, CSS and much more.  In the process you'll create a custom website on whatever topic you want.  It's been estimated that Wordpress powers over a third of the entire internet, so find out why, and gain valuable skills in the process.

Website Designer In Detail

This course covers many of the main areas of web design, both technical and non technical. We start by setting up our own Wordpress installation on our own server, and discuss creating interesting content, using plugins to improve the appearance of our websites. Once we’ve got a basic site up and running we explore the languages behind our site – HTML, CSS, SQL and PHP. We learn how to optimize our sites for speed and search engine rankings, and then cover customizing our theme using HTML and PHP to make custom pages.

Our Tutors
We've brought together the best of our tutors to instruct and help the students. They're typically recent graduates or undergraduates studying Engineering or Computer Science at leading Russell-group Universities. Of course they're chosen for their communication and technical skills and have Enhanced DBS checks for working with children.

Our Sessions
Engaging learning must be hands-on. Our 'At Home' programme offer a mix of video tutoring, collaborative learning and self-paced project work during and after the session to make sure that learning is deep, engaging and lasting.

FAQs

My child has no prior experience - can they still attend?
Yes! We don't assume any prior knowledge for our courses.  The only exception is if when we run followup courses that are labelled as 'Advanced' or 'Level 2' that normally require the prior course to have been taken.  Do ask if you're unsure.
Five Stars The online course was great and the tutor engaged with the children and helped them calmly and effectively - we were not needed at all. My son really enjoyed the course and did all of the extra challenges too.
