Website in a Weekend


The ability to design and develop websites using industry standards is a valuable skill for career progression and personal enjoyment.

This course offers you a rapid introduction to the practical skills necessary to design, develop and publish a basic website – from scratch to a website in one weekend. 

We provide a hands-on practical introduction to web design and development through the use of industry standard HTML 5 and CSS 3. It is an intense course that covers the fundamentals of creating a website. 

This beginner’s course assumes you have experience of using a computer and competence with Microsoft Windows. No previous experience of web design or development is required.
