Lumify Learn currently offers three different courses that deal with skills in web development:

Certified Full Stack Developer

ICT40120 – Certificate IV in Information Technology (Web Development)

ICT50220 – Diploma of Information Technology (Back End Web Development)

Each program is made up of nationally recognised or internationally recognised certifications to help you gain the attention of potential employers.

Our Certified Full Stack Developer program is comprised of the globally-renowned Certified Entry-Level Python Programmer and DevOps Foundation certifications by the Python Institute and the DevOps Institute, respectively. Our certificate and diploma courses are nationally recognised, and can help you build the skills to advance your studies or land entry-level opportunities in the industry.

All are flexibly delivered online, allowing you to train at a time, place, and pace that suits you best. You’ll also get a chance to network with other like-minded individuals through our online portal, and gain access to Lumify Edge – a membership that helps link you to potential employers and offers you further career advice through your employment journey in web development.

Aspiring web developers typically require a formal qualification or two to find employment in this field. According to Labour Market Insights, these can include credentials in web design, digital media, digital design, and other related sectors. While university degrees are a common study pathway, vocational education and training (VET) courses are also a popular choice – providing students with a highly flexible, affordable option towards building the skills they need.

Lumify Learn offers such courses at varying skill levels (boot camp, certificate, and diploma-level training), comprised of widely recognised qualifications to help you stand out in the job market.

However, training web developers are also recommended to pursue their own personal projects – helping them build and explore their skills through practical experience. Internships are also an effective way of achieving this, helping you apply your training to an actual workplace environment, while building your connections with new peers and potential employers in the industry.

Website development refers to the entire process of building a website – from its design, to its construction, to its maintenance stage. The field comprises three main roles: front-end web development, back-end web development, and full-stack web development.

Front-end web development primarily focuses on the client-facing elements of a website. This includes its interface, navigational buttons, and any multimedia features.

Back-end web development zeroes in on the server-side elements of a webpage – such as the scripting, databases, and general architectural features that keep it up and running. This particular role concentrates on managing the behind-the-scenes activities that take place when interactions (i.e. online purchases, file-sharing, navigation) occur on the site.

Finally, full-stack web development combines both areas into a single role. Full-stack web developers have the advanced skillset to design and develop complete websites and web applications, making them highly valuable professionals in any IT setting.
