Our one-day WordPress Starter Workshop is perfect if you already have a WordPress website and are looking to manage and grow without having to rely on a website design company or freelancer. It also suits if you are looking to improve your WordPress skills and knowledge with a hands-on approach.

In this workshop, the standard WordPress CMS is dissected and we look at what can be achieved with the settings, functions, tools, and plugins at your disposal. All of this you discover by actually completing tasks, so you become comfortable with the WordPress management backend.
