HTML and CSS – design and code a website training
2 days In centre:
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.

- 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. We can provide your training in-class at one of our centres, at your venue, or online.
Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.
Been furloughed? You can still participate in training without this affecting your furloughed status, as confirmed on gov.uk.

Standard course times are 9.30am–4.30pm.
