Course Information

Course Title: Web Design (NPA)

Course Level: N5


The purpose of the NPA Web Design is to allow learners to develop the technical skills required to create websites and graphics, and add interactivity to websites. There is also a focus on the importance of the website development process.

It is important to recognise the digital skills gap in Scotland, as highlighted by the Skills Gap Survey undertaken by the Scottish Government, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland, in 2014. Building on the previous version of this course, this revised version aims to bring the units in line with current web design and development standards. Therefore, this award aims to cover the following three topics:

  • website design and development
  • website graphics
  • interactive media
