NPTC Group are Wales’ largest college with eleven campuses throughout Swansea, Neath, Port Talbot, Maesteg, Brecon, Llandrindod Wells and Newtown.
The design brief for this project was to come up with a young, modern and trendy looking website that will appeal to the college students and tutors alike. Through multiple web design visuals, iterations and client brief meetings, we were able to develop this colourful theme that matched the current college colourscheme.
For several years we have designed, developed and managed this mammoth educational website. Over the years the website has added various features from advanced course search, photo gallery, RSS feeds, departmental sections, interative maps and social media interaction. The challenge came when Daly Design were asked to re-design this website within a few weeks, knowing the size of this website (over 2,000 pages), our web designers were hard at work re-designing this website and successfully met the deadline.
Through the bespoke bi-lingual admin Content Management System (CMS), the marketing department within the college are abe to keep the website up to date with the latest developments on courses, awards, initiatives, news and events within the college.
With the content management system being bi-lingual, the marketing department’s welsh translator is also able to manage the welsh text with the website. The bespoke Content Management System has been developed so that the english text is located together with the welsh, allowing the translator to easily view the english text whilst translating. This function may seem simple and logical, but it does help speed up the workflow whilst translating the website.
This website has been thoroughly optimised for search engines (SEO) and appears at the top of the rankings for a wide range of search phrases.
Update: NPTC Group have since built a new wordpress website and now manage it in-house.
