What will the workshop cover?

The WordPress workshop will cover:

  1. Setup: Creating a new WordPress website
  2. Design: Choosing a theme for their website
  3. Content: Adding text, image galleries and video to their website
  4. Customise: Adding visual and functional elements to their website

To create a new website, each child will need access to an email address. This can be a parent’s email address. It is possible for us to set up a temporary email address for the workshop, but the website will then need to be transferred to a parent’s account.
