There’s a good reason why over 35% of the world’s websites are powered by WordPress, the world's most popular Content Management System (CMS). It’s relatively easy to get started building a website with WordPress, but like many things, it’s hard to perfect.

Our tutor-led online WordPress courses don’t just teach you how to use the CMS. They also provide practical feedback as you learn, making sure that you pick up the best habits from the start. Those with a basic understanding of WordPress can choose from one of our more advanced courses, giving you the skills to customise WordPress to a whole new level.

Our popular WordPress course for visual artists takes a different approach and is designed to teach artists how to create a portfolio WordPress site worthy of their work.

Our tutors have been there and done it. Now they’re passionate to teach how to succeed with WordPress.
