Priocept appointed by Sheffield City Council to deliver Magnolia CMS training


Priocept has been appointed by Sheffield City Council to assist in the training and roll-out of their new Magnolia based website and content management platform.

After completion of the initial website and CMS development phase, Sheffield City Council were in need of a partner that had a combination of Magnolia CMS technical expertise, and experience in providing end-user training to CMS authors.

Priocept will work with Sheffield City Council to create a Magnolia CMS training programme and develop a Magnolia CMS training platform or “sandbox”.  Priocept will then deliver the training courses to the team of CMS authors, and also provide “train the trainer” services to allow Sheffield City Council to carry out in-house CMS training courses going forward.
