Umbraco training

Optimising the website

Umbraco training programme

The Umbraco training programme provides engaging and accessible instructions for staff using our content management system (CMS). 

User workshops were held over the summer with colleagues from across the university, which revealed common themes and obstacles. This valuable input enabled us to ensure the right content is covered in the course.

Since the launch of the new website in May 2018, much has changed on Umbraco, with regular developments being added. Even if you are already confident using Umbraco, we recommend you take the course to gain an updated and comprehensive understanding of Umbraco’s current structure and functionality. All new Umbraco users will also be required to complete the course to ensure the CMS is used as effectively as possible.
