Welcome To WebCrafters
IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU
A bit more about us!
WebCrafters is a student-led project aiming to enable students to access the hidden job market through the power of the personal website. Whether you are a student, a graduate, or looking to have a change of career, we are here to help you promote your personality and achievements in the best possible light. How? By teaching you to code your own personal portfolio website and showing you how to interface that site with LinkedIn and other key employability sites to maximise your online presence. These will enable you to gravitate towards the hidden job market and showcase yourself in the best possible light to prospective employers.
According to Workfolio, 56% of employers are more impressed by a candidate’s personal website than any other personal branding tool, yet only 7% of job seekers utilise one. Our interactive 6-week website coding course, delivered by our programme developers and mentors, will enable you to differentiate yourself from the comfort of your home. Also, an employability session at the end of the course will include a professional talk on how personal websites can be utilised to access jobs that are never advertised. On the whole, WebCrafters will help you to showcase the “best you” online, and guide you towards the hidden job market!
Don’t miss out, sign up today for our course starting in early November!

Web Design Course
Start Date: Semester 1 (1st Nov 2021)
An interactive 6-week introductory course to web coding. By the end of the course, students will have created their own personal portfolio website that will offer a unique insight to prospective employers and will differentiate themselves from the crowd. Each week will consist of a pre-recorded lecture, a coding challenge, and a 1 hour drop-in session to address coding issues and questions.
Content covered includes:
- HTML: webpage structure, text, lists and links

At the end of the course, students will be able to deploy their coded website onto the worldwide web. This will be followed with a talk by a professional guest-speaker on how students’ personal websites can be utilised in tandem with social media to access the open and hidden job market! Furthermore, a certificate of recognition will be awarded upon completion.

Alongside this we offer a programme of LinkedIn recommendations, to verify your skills, and select HEAR accreditation.
