What career opportunities can this lead to?

Eastleigh College offers other Business and Computing courses- please browse the website for details.

What are the entry requirements?

This is a five week course designed to introduce students to the basics of website creation, as well as the benefits of doing so. There is room to expand this course if desired.

Students will need to have IT skills in order to use the software provided.

What does this programme involve?

Having a website has never been easier. It's also a perfect way to keep in touch, support a business, share ideas, and build a community. However, getting started can be a daunting task, and it can be difficult to know how to begin. This course can help dispel some of the confusion surrounding website creation and hosting, as well as clarifying outdated information and helping prepare new website users for navigating an internet ruled by GDPR.

Content outline:

* Introduction to Wordpress: This session will introduce students to Wordpress UI, examples of the types of websites Wordpress can produce, and how to choose a website designed to suit their purpose.

* Dream to Design: Students will be shown how to select a theme on Wordpress and customise it. They will also be taught basic website design concepts, and how to add pages to their website.

* Extras: This session will focus on widgets and plug-ins, as well as features of Wordpress paid accounts. We will also touch on using photography and other media in website creation.

* CSS Code Changes: Sometimes a pre-made template isn't quite right. So we will look at how to tweak CSS templates in order to achieve our desired look.

* Just the Beginning: Students will learn how to link their website updates to their social media, promote their website, and use it to achieve their goals.

An Eastleigh College certificate can be requested on successful completion of the course.

How is the programme taught and assessed?

The course will be taught by demonstration and one to one coaching. Extra tuition will be given where needed. This course is primarily hands on learning.

What else do I need to know?

Please bring pen and paper/notebook to the class.

Students are responsible for the purchase of materials relevant to the course. However WordPress is free to use, at least for simple webpages.
