What you learn

On the one-day website course, you will learn how to create and build your website from scratch. You do not need to bring a computer, as most of the work is done with pen and paper. You do not need to know about coding or design, because all of that is taken care of by WordPress. Your tutor, Alex, will teach you the professional approach to creating a website, giving you tips and tricks most website designers would not know.
