Web Design Training

Before the course I felt quite bemused & uninterested by web design but I feel very inspired by today. Tomorrow I start building my own website... Thank you.

Whether you know how to click the buttons but need help with the principles of good web design, or you are a newcomer to web design and want to learn the rules before you start to design, this is the web design training course for you.

Get the Basics Right

We've been running web design courses since 1999 - and the web has changes immeasurably since then.

Just now - mobile is the biggest thing to happen to web design in the last decade, and our new Responsive Web Design course is designed to bring experienced designers up to speed with the latest standards and design principles.

However - we also continue to update this ever-popular 2-day Introduction to Web Design course. The basic principles of web design need to be covered before the bells and whistles - and this comprehensive 1-day course encourages web design beginners to think about their users, their site structure, colours, fonts and navigation elements before they start building and getting carried away with the latest technologies.

There's always something to be said for sitting down and planning things on paper before you start to design - our trainers are all highly experienced web designers working in the industry right now - so you can be sure everything you learn is at the leading edge of current web standards.

We also provide in-company Web Design courses. Call +44 (0)1273 622272 to discuss.

Course Feedback

I'm really pleased that I did the courses, especially the web design course which in some part helped me secure a new job. It's made HTML and CSS a lot more understandable... just got to put it into practice now!

I really enjoyed the Web Design and Dreamweaver training I did last month and the HTML course last week. I felt the tutors I had were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and patient (important with technical things as it is very easy to feel confused and then a bit intimidated) and the atmosphere was very friendly overall. The tutors were really careful not to use technical jargon or acronyms and to never go too fast until all the class have caught up. They managed the different levels in the class very well, supporting those that were a little behind and needed extra help while simultaneously setting other tasks for those that were faster. The resources they recommended as we went where very helpful and the course notes were excellent.
