HTML and CSS training course for beginners, teaching how to code websites.

Whilst most websites today are created using a CMS like WordPress, or through a website builder like GoDaddy, there is another option – you can design and create a static website by writing your own HTML and CSS.

This pacy, practical course teaches how to write code in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and develop Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). You’ll learn skills to create and maintain flexible, accessible websites with Content Management Systems suitable for viewing on desktops, tablets and mobiles.

Sessions cover:

  • Web standards, the W3C and WHATWG.
  • Creating and testing pages.
  • HTML and structure – why it matters.
  • About hyperlinks.
  • Images and HTML.
  • About CSS.
  • Publishing a website.

This course is ideal for anyone wanting to work with HTML and CSS for website development – marketeers, graphic designers, administrators, web content editors, and many, many more.

HTML and CSS – design and code a website training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed course’ for your group. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.

In-class or online

Our centres are open for in-class training, with full safety measures and comprehensive sanitisation implemented.

We continue to offer all courses in our popular live online format.

Expert trainers

WordPress courses are hosted by expert trainers with vast knowledge and experience of web development and coding. See Expert trainers.

How will I learn?

HTML and CSS – design and code a website training is hands-on and practical.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.

Training guide and certificate

Course delegates receive:

  • Comprehensive training materials for HTML/CSS, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an HTML and CSS – design and code a website training course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

Following HTML/CSS training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their trainer to help with any post-course issues. For further details, see Support.


No prior coding knowledge is necessary.

Whilst a little HTML or CSS knowledge will be beneficial, and experience using an HTML-based tool like Adobe Dreamweaver will come in handy, this is not essential.
