Your college's website isn't just another site on the internet; it's the centre of all your marketing and recruitment. We build websites that aren't just visually appealing; they’re mobile-friendly, lightning-fast, secure, SEO optimised and conversion focused. Our designs are a mix of creativity and function, created to appeal to a diverse audience and to public sector accessibility guidelines.
Beyond crafting visually appealing and high-performing websites, we arm them with reporting and analytics tools. These tools give you a clear understanding of your audience's behaviour and wider marketing campaigns perform. We're not here to simply build a website and walk away. Our commitment extends to continuous improvement, keeping your website in sync with the latest trends, technologies, and developments.
Countless colleges have trusted us to lead them on this journey; now, it's your turn.
Mobile first design
Our design philosophy is clear: mobile-first, brand-specific. We don't believe in one-size-fits-all approach to design. Every website gets a unique mobile experience. It's not just about ticking boxes; it's about making your college's personality shine on every screen.
Craft CMS Partners
We are proud to be a Craft CMS partner. Having developed over 20 college sites in Craft CMS, we know its capable of delivering all the functionality and integrations a further education website would require. A powerful and flexible CMS, Craft enables people without any technical knowledge to build their own website pages without development help.
Craft CMS is not just robust; it's inherently secure. Regular security and functionality updates ensure your cyber protection and means Craft isn't just popular among our college clients, it is used by industry giants like Visit Scotland, Virgin Holidays, British Gas, Netflix, IKEA, and Dell.
We have a track record of connecting your college's digital infrastructure with vital Management Information Systems like ProSolution and Tribal. Plus, we know the ins and outs of e-marketing platforms, and we're well-versed in bridging the gap between your college and platforms like National Apprenticeship Vacancies and Eventbrite.
Every website we create is thoughtfully designed and rigorously tested to meet the Public Sector Bodies accessibility regulations of 2018. But that's not all; our content management platform ensures that your website not only meets these standards but also stays ahead of the game for years to come.
Bluestorm’s digital team, hands down have not only met our expectations but exceeded them! Nothing is too much trouble. They won us over every week with their detailed understanding of our needs. All our activities and communications were tracked on Trello and we were coached through their CMS. We were confident and assured all along that we would get a college website to be proud of and we would deliver within the four-month timescale. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Bluestorm
