Would you like to learn web design?

Maybe to make your own site, or to learn a new skill, or to explore the possibility of earning some money?

I offer courses that start with no previous experience, right through to designing a WordPress theme. I can deliver either one on one at your pace, in a small group, or online.

If you start with no experience I will help you develop a simple but effective web site using html, css and some javascript. This might sound a little daunting, but the way of teaching is through repetition and in small incremental steps. Once that is understood switching to a WordPress development will be easy.

Why WordPress?

Many web-sites use wordpress as the backbone of what they deliver. It is very stable and well maintained. There are numerous forums and tutorials that can be found whenever a problem is encountered. And from a designer’s perspective it is highly customisable.

By the time the course is completed you will have a site ready to be expanded, and should you choose it could be uploaded to the web at an address of your choice.

Extensive notes are available on-line, together with web locations where further help can be found.

[The above is an outline, it can be shaped according to the individual’s level.]

In the course you will learn:

  • how to change the style of a site (the stylesheet)
  • how to give different styles to a menu
  • how to ensure a site is visible on all sizes of devices
  • with WordPress how to develop a theme, and code a plugin
  • that and much more!
The costs?

This really depends on how far you want to take it. I even have some lessons that are for free. If you were to use the course on-line, or you can arrange for a small group to be taught the costs are minimal for what you will get from it. I suggest contact me, begin with some free lessons and see if it meets what you want. Then we can discuss how to move forward.

You will need to have a computer with access to the internet. The free lessons you will not need an actual web site to work on. I will have you use a site that is designed for code development and where you can see the results live.

If interested then please use the contact form and send me a message with as much details as you can as to what you are hoping to achieve.
