Responsive Website Design: Access Training Academies
Access Training Academies provide a variety of training courses to adult learners across the UK. They have helped countless people to earn industry-recognised qualifications and start new careers as plumbers, electricians, gas engineers, et cetera; they also offer a variety of options for established tradespeople who wish to broaden their skillsets, update their knowledge, and earn more advanced qualifications.
Creating a website for a company that offers such a wide range of services to such a diverse array of customers is always a challenge, but we at Designer Websites once again proved that we were more than up to the task. From the school leaver to the professional gasman to the bored office worker who’s ready to learn a new trade, we believe that the revamped Access Training website makes it easy for anyone to find the course they need.
One of the main issues with Access Training’s old website was its design, which was in dire need of a refresh after many years of use. The old site looked crowded and text-heavy, and the user experience was especially poor on mobile devices. To address this problem, we created a responsive design that's easy to navigate on all devices, from desktop computers to smartphones and tablets. The key components of each training package are easily gleaned from the crisp, user-friendly course pages.
In order to persuade would-be tradespeople that Access Training can put them on the path to a rewarding new career, our clients asked us to put as much emphasis as possible on their past success stories. The new website features numerous testimonial quotes and videos of former learners who set up their own businesses after getting qualified through Access Training Academies. The company's high Trustpilot score is also featured prominently throughout the website for additional reassurance.
In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Access Training began to offer live online training, enabling students to start learning a new trade from the safety of their own homes. A key aim of the new Access Training site is to encourage users to join Access Training's online community - we've made it easy to get started no matter which page you're looking at, and all signups are automatically fed from the website into the company’s CRM software, ensuring that each newcomer is properly welcomed.
