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 available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) HTML/CSS courses.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.

The training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the type of websites you’re going to be developing.

HTML and CSS – design and code a website courses are hosted by Andrew Moreton, a long-established consultant, web developer and trainer.

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.

  • Comprehensive training materials for HTML/CSS, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.
