'Brilliant course! The tutor taught us a complicated subject in an engaging and manageable way that has really lit my enthusiasm for web design! We put our new skills into practice while we learnt to create our website throughout the course. It has given me a lot of confidence to continue working with web design and coding!' - Anon
