21st Century Training

21st Century New Media began life as 21st Century Design in the mid 90's, designing and building websites for businesses of all shapes and sizes. In the natural course of time, web design became web development and with the addition of online marketing the business expanded into a fully fledged digital agency, incorporating as 21st Century New Media Ltd in March 2000.

Established at Elstree Film Studios for almost a decade, the company segwayed into delivering training courses in 2003, securing contracts with the BBC, CH4, CH5 and ITN amongst others. In 2008 we unveiled our very own purpose built training studio in St Albans, from which we continue to offer an ever widening roster of creative, digital and media related courses to businesses in the Herts, Beds and Bucks areas.

The course was fantastic, as was the tutor. I have learnt a great deal and would most definitely recommend this course to others. I would also recommend the course to people who already have a knowledge of Photoshop and would like to gain further skills (not just beginners).

Rachelle, Just Eat

A whistlestop tour of After Effects which covered all of the main things I needed to know. Conducted in a good follow-along format with an understanding and helpful tutor.

Jonathan, De Montfort Students’ Union

The course was enlightening for me and I learned many pointers that I could not have picked up from YouTube, and other online video sources. I felt that the informal tutor interaction was placed just right, allowing us both to interrupt with our own questions and concerns at will.

Anthony, Lancaster University

Really good, learnt so much in four days. Well taught and easy to understand, so much information given and tips and tricks for WordPress, SEO, HTML & CSS. Got so much to take back to the office and practice and put to good use. Would fully recommend to anyone looking for a course on Web design and development.
