About the course

We cover everything from WordPress installation and set up to all the most useful features and tools WordPress offers. You get a brand new site to work on through the day, which you will practise on and make your own. You will apply an attractive design, make the site search engine friendly and add all the features and functionality you need to further develop and run the site yourself.

You can keep the site after the course, hosted free for one year.  After that, hosting is available from just £8/mo for our standard WordPress hosting package – see more details of our hosting packages here.
