Excellent introduction to creating a website. It covers a lot of ground and gives you a good basis for taking it further outside the class.

It was an all-day course but fun. The tutor was as patient as he was expert and paced it very well. No need to be intimidated or feel remotely self-conscious. The class was full but the size of it (11) meant that everyone was given the attention they needed. My wife and I really enjoyed it and felt that we learnt quite a lot. You will find that the whole thing is demystified for you.

An excellent course. The tutor explained everything in a way that was easy to understand and ensured everyone understood before moving onto the next bit. If you got stuck, she came over to help you get back on track. I now feel confident of being able to create a website/blog using WordPress.

The course runs at a good pace and demystifies the subject. The tutor creates a great atmosphere for learning in. The day was fun, interesting and very instructive. With no previous experience, I am now confident I can build a simple website on my own.

This is a very intensive one day course so will suit people who already have some basic knowledge, or are quick on the uptake. Otherwise take the same course spread over shorter sessions. I went already managing a Wordpress site and wanting to do it better and it worked for that perfectly.

If you want to use Wordpress this covers all the basics

It assumes course attendees have absolutely no knowledge of the internet so takes you right back to basics. However, if you get past all of that, the course did exactly what I needed and showed me how to use Wordpress which was what I was looking for. Great instruction, great tutor.

Really recommend this one - you'll end up with a website as the course says and the pace is just right. Even as a non-techy person I was enjoying it right through to the end.

If you want to have a go at building your own site definitely go for it - it was intensive but the tutor was great at explaining the jargon and it was satisfying to see a site come together in a matter of hours. You'll have to put some more work in after the course though if you want something good enough to send out to prospective clients

A good practical way of learning how to build your own simple but fully functioning website. Much easier than trying to figure it out on your own or trying to refer to YouTube tutorials. I was pleased with the simple website I was able to create at the end of the day.

The course was just the right intensity and matched the course description perfectly - there was plenty of opportunity to try things and all the basics covered in a good overview. A computer-literate person could be up and running after this day. The tutor was an excellent and enthusiastic communicator.

This is one of the best computer courses I have ever taken. The tutor is inspirational and prepared to go an extra mile to explain any questions. At the end of the day I was able to build not only my website but also my husbands.

I took literally the course title 'build ... in a day' and no way did the course equip me to do this hence the low ratings I have given the course. To pace the course step by step making sure slower students like me weren't left behind would have made the course excellent value and an inspiring experience. The tutor was skilled, friendly and knew the subject matter backwards.

This is a really good introduction, entertainingly taught. The pace is slow enough for almost-beginners to encompass it very easily. And by the end of the day, you have a website.
