What you learn

On the one-day website course, you 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 even website designers do not know.

  • Craft headlines and text your readers will respond to
  • Find, create and edit images

  • Select from nearly 4,000 beautiful WordPress Themes that work on desktop computers and mobile devices
  • Customise a chosen Theme

  • Create and edit Menus
  • Upload words and images to Pages and Posts
  • Install essential Plugins
  • Register your website easily

After the course, you will not have a complete website ready to take the world by storm. But you will know how to do it.

Your website will take days or weeks to build – and the work will never be finished. And that’s how it should be. In fact, the more often you make changes, the more seriously search engines will treat your website and the higher it will rank in searches.

A class of your own

On yourwebsitecourse, you will meet other people who are creating and building their own websites – people like you and people you’ll like. You are encouraged to keep in touch, so you can help each other out as you develop your website skills.

Alex is so personable and professional, I was blown away with his course content and delivery. I already had my website up and running but this helped me a lot to make positive changes and tweaks, and make me more confident and believe in my ability to sell myself well. Throughout the course, you could see Alex’s passion and knowledge in abundance. He combines his love for the subject with his many years of experience. His enthusiasm will no doubt rub off on you and you will leave the course feeling fantastic and confident in your ability to write a website from scratch. Highly recommended.
