Overview

With millions of websites currently online and more being added each day, the importance of a high-quality website cannot be underestimated. From a visually pleasing web page to easy navigation and use, the design of a web page can make or break a website. As more and more companies are now relying on online sales and marketing, the demand for skilled web designers is on a constant rise.

The field of web development has grown rapidly over the years and web developers are in demand. Both for in house and client services. Websites are now the single most effective method for sales, information and communication and having an effective website is the difference in how well an organisation succeeds, especially in our current environment.

Course description
