Learn web design
Are you a business or individual looking to design & build your own website? Rather than learning to code in HTML, WordPress may be the quickest & easiest solution to getting to grips with building websites without a massive learning curve.
The WordPress platform
Millions of websites, from small personal blogs to vast corporate intranet sites are powered by WordPress, it has a small learning curve & if you have enough knowledge to edit social media sites such as Facebook, then you can easily take control of a WordPress site.
One of the main things that attracts people to WordPress is the ability to perform easy edits on your website such as adding text & image content without having to wait around for a web designer to do it. WordPress plugins can bring your site to life & allow you to add a wide range of functionality to your website at the click of a button. From feedback forms, to music & YouTube players.
I’m Jake Richard, I have been building websites freelance both from scratch & in WordPress for over 12 years, in addition I have experience teaching web design & animation at further education level at a local college. I have also spent many years teaching music so I am extremely patient! I’m based in Skipton, North Yorkshire, & i offer lessons in web design either from my office, or at your place of work or home within a ten mile range of Skipton.
I will go through all aspects of designing & building a website at a pace that suits you, if you prefer you can register a domain name & work on a real world project, so that at the end of the training you will finish up with a fully functional & branded website to represent your business.
