Web Training

The Web Team offers various training programs to the wider University community, in order to help you create and maintain your web presence.

The majority of the University's public-facing web content is housed in the Squiz Matrix Content Management System (CMS). All staff who require access to this CMS need to undergo training with the Web Team before access will be granted.

There are multiple training entry points for working with content in Squiz Matrix, the course you should attend is determined by which area of the University you are from and what your existing web content management skill level and/or experience is. From there you are able to further develop your web skills with our online resources and face-to-face Web Accessibility training.
