Introduction to WordPress

About the Course

So you own your own business or perhaps you want to start a great blog about knitting or vegan food? This great 1-day course will teach you the basics of setting up and developing your own WordPress site. Our course is divided into two parts; the first part will deal with the overall software you will be using and the second part focuses on how you can customise and develop your WordPress site to suit your business or blogging needs! WordPress is a content management system that is used to build a range of websites. It’s easy to use for the end-user but highly customisable for developers (that’s you!). It is the main piece of software we use to design client websites and is widely used by other development companies.

Extra tuition is available at any point if you feel you might need it.
