WordPress training in London

Create your website in a day with an affordable, group WordPress training course.

Once a month we run a small and friendly group WordPress training session from our studio in South East London. In a relaxed environment you will learn how to operate WordPress confidently so you can create your own custom website.

We will provide a two course healthy lunch that will include ‘brain foods’ that aid concentration. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know in advance.

The group is limited to 4 so we can help each person individually. You can either work on your existing website or create a new one from scratch.

About the day

You will learn to use a highly versatile and user friendly WordPress template. So by the end of the day you will know all about plugins and widgets and be able to change colours, fonts and add pages and social media.

If you have a logo and your content ready you could have a completed website at the end of the day!
