Welcome to our Coding for Websites course! Website development is an ever-expanding field, and the demand for knowledgeable coders is increasing daily.

Our short course will equip you with the fundamental skills you need to code in HTML and CSS. If HTML is the bricks-and-mortar structure of a house, then CSS is the paint, curtains and other finishes that make it beautiful.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to code your own Web page using the latest version of HTML to structure your data, and CSS to position and style it.

why should you enrol for this course?

The dynamic and ever-expanding digital economy has plenty of room for people with coding skills. The coding basics taught in this course will give you the satisfaction of creating a unique website from scratch while developing your logical, problem solving, and digital literacy skills.
