To add to OLC’s history of multi-skilled employees, Tutors Ashley Eubank and Shaun Lewis have been building a new website for OLC that is due to go live by January 2016, ready for the new year. Over the last 4 months Shaun Lewis and Ashley Eubank have been constructing a WordPress site which was originally designed for bloggers. The site has been retro-fitted to fit the college’s needs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Shaun (who has previously designed a website for Chorley FM Radio Station) set about designing the base for OLC’s new website, before Ashley joined him in early November. Together they have been tirelessly designing and writing, from scratch, a website that both caters for students, prospective, current and alumni, and corporate delegates interested in training.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”7885″ img_size=”full”][vc_custom_heading text=”Front Page of New Website” font_container=”tag:h6|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The pair stated that, “we have both enjoyed this project immensely” and that, “although it has been stressful, we are looking forward to everyone seeing our efforts finished”. Shaun worked on the coding of the site’s backend, as well as the images and logos, whilst Ashley worked on the visual layouts of pages, colour schemes, and content (with invaluable help from Jonathan Saunders and Kelly Haslam).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The site allows students to apply directly to OLC, as well email members of staff, view case studies, keep up to date with news and blogs via an RSS feed, and access OLC’s Student Area, a section specifically designed for current students. We are currently testing the website and no staff member is free from website involvement as almost everyone is a proof-reader or tester is some way, so that we can ensure the information provided is accurate, aesthetic and represents OLC’s vision moving forwards.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
