Venue: Cheviot Centre, Padgepool Place, Wooler, Northumberland, NE71 6BL

The Build your own Website workshop has been created for businesses who want to create their own website/presence. Using a standard Content Management System (CMS), you will be able to create, edit and manage your own site with scope to add additional features to increase the functionality. We will be using WordPress as our CMS and will be following a standard website structure.

WordPress is free to use software that around 75 million websites use. This will allow you to build your own site that will scale with you and your business, and allow you to customise to add additional functionality and style.

During this practical workshop, you will learn how to –

  • Configure WordPress correctly
  • Install plugins (add functionality)
  • Create new pages
  • Create blog posts
  • Optimise content for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  • Register your site in webmaster tools

Because of the nature of the software used, please ensure that you have a laptop with you (not a tablet/smartphone) and your power charger/supply. You do not need to have any prior website design/technical experience to complete this workshop. The WordPress software requires an active hosting plan, to support this workshop, you will receive 40 days free hosting to give you ample time to complete the 1-day workshop and any additional development training you would like to look at. After this time, you may choose to pay for the hosting with the chosen provider, cancel, or move to another provider. Alternatively, you can provide your own hosting (please ensure it is compatible with WordPress and this is installed prior to the workshop)

This event is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to the waiting list and notified when we have another date in the diary, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
