Gutenberg Training

Training date

Friday, May 24, 2019 at 9.30am – 12.30pm

(The course is in Cambridge, UK – details at bottom of page)

This course is for people who:

  • have been scared to switch to Gutenberg/the new ‘block editor’ in
  • switched to Gutenberg but are confused by what they see
  • have a little knowledge of Gutenberg but would like to expand that and be more secure in that knowledge
  • have some experience of using already, but not got confident using Gutenberg
  • would like to get some hints about ways of extending Gutenberg and gaining extra blocks through plugins

What is covered by this training?


We will start by checking that everyone is hooked up to WiFi and logged into their sites on their laptops. You will need to have updated to Gutenberg, and switched off any plugins designed to override the new editor. We will help you with this if you need assistance.

Don’t forget your passwords and your chargers/cables!

Live walk-through

We will use the projector to show you the key features of Gutenberg and how to edit your content using the new editor, live on a test site.

You will learn about the most important and commonly used blocks, and how to style them in various ways.

We will show you how to use Gutenberg to make your site content easy for both search engines and humans to read and use. You will learn about the importance of using the right blocks for your content.

Practice with support

The second section of the training event will involve you practising on your own website with support on hand from the two tutors, Zuzana and Elisabeth.


We will share, via our website, resources and links for you to use after the training event so that you can revisit any of the topics we have covered. We will also share links to plugins which can extend your use of Gutenberg and give you extra features.
