The first graduates of our new Web Development Course

30.06.21

Over the past two weeks, we have enjoyed being surrounded by eager students participating in our new web development course. Together with our partner, Byte Limited, we recognized the need to enhance the digital skillset of young people. As a result, Byte Limited developed a short course in WordPress website development. Throughout this hands-on course, participants learned first-hand how to use WordPress, create a website to their likings, and move the website online.

From the feedback that we received from the students, we are confident that there is a demand for courses that focus on digital skills, and we can promise you more courses are in the pipeline! With the rains starting in Freetown, we will take it a bit slower for now and get back to you with new courses in few weeks!
