More about this skill

Working with web technologies is a key skill in a world that increasingly places the web at the heart of a modern platform. It is also one of the most complex and diverse of all skills.

Web designers and developers will first establish a professional relationship with clients to develop a deep understanding of the requirements for their website. Strong design and communication skills, coupled with a grasp of target audiences, markets, and trends are all essential. During the development process, web designers and developers create databases, build programmes, as well as test and debug websites.
