Rahoo provides online EPV Teaching Courses to both primary and post primary teachers in Ireland. They required a modern well designed website to showcase their courses as well as easy to update with their blog posts.
A modern responsive website was required that would lead to more organic traffic through teachers searching for online courses. Rahoo are an award winning teacher course provider based in Clare, but servicing all of Ireland and wanted a professional website design to reflect this.
- The website was to be designed to perform well in search engines and to have a good end user experience
- The responsive site will display well on all screen sizes including mobile devices
- Website needed to be visually appealing to a range of potential ages.
- Ciara wanted an easy to update website where she could change course details as required.
- The system will be developed in WordPress – which is an easy to use Content Management System (CMS).
- Currently the old website wasn’t gaining many organic visitors and it was agreed that SEO was crucial to improving this.
Rahoo had an existing logo which was the source of the main colour scheme.
