About Cheynes Training

Cheynes Training is one of the UK’s most established training companies - working directly with candidates and salon owners to deliver effective apprenticeships. Digital Six has had the pleasure of working with Cheynes Training for nearly 10 years, designing and developing various versions of their website.

Cheynes Training website
The Challenge
The time had come to upgrade to a more modern web platform which would make it easier for the Cheynes Training team to update and manage. The site needed a redesign as it was quite dated and wasn’t responsive. In addition to this, the website required 4 different account levels: Apprentice, Teacher, Assessor and Employer. We implemented a user accounts area that provides clients with the ability to request access, create a password and then once approved view the relevant material for their needs.
The Solution
Built on Wordpress, we were able to redesign the website to give it a new look whilst maintaining the existing brand identity. The site is now fully responsive and has a much more user friendly interface.

Improved Content

The News section was previously displayed on one long page rather than separate articles. We redesigned the News page so that users can easily find articles, as well as sort the articles by the month or topic of their choice. The new addition of a ‘Star Stories’ section features articles written by current and past apprentices. These provide insight into their experiences and success gained through their apprenticeships.
