Training Team Mission

The WordPress training team helps people learn to use, extend, and contribute to WordPress through synchronous and asynchronous learning as well as downloadable lesson plans for instructors to use in live environments via learn.wordpress.org.


I’m new to the Training Team!

Thanks for joining! Please walk through our Onboarding Program. This will give you an overview of the team, help you set up the accounts you need to contribute, and even walk you through your first contribution!

We expect the onboarding program above to take 30-60 minutes. Once you’ve completed onboarding, jump into these other activities to continue contributing!

Write a script for a learning pathway lesson

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on from one of the User or Developer learning pathways. Once found, you can assign yourself as one of the contributors to the lesson and mention that you will write the script. You can add the script to the GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ Issue once it is completed.

Review published content and submit feedback

The WordPress software continues to grow, and new features are always added. Reviewing published content and updating content is important in keeping the Learn WordPress website current. Follow the team guide about reviewing published content to leave feedback about any content below. (Reviewing older content would be helpful!)

Submit new content topic ideas

Have a look through the Learn WordPress website. Are there any topics you feel would be great to add to the website? Add your topic ideas to our GitHub repository from the link below:

New GitHub Issue: Topic Idea – Remember to use the “Content Development (general)” Issue.


I have experience working with the Training Team!

Thanks for joining! Depending on your interests, there are a few ways you can get involved. For each of the tasks below, the team handbook should help you with process specifics. But if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Content Creation / Scriptwriting

Are you interested in creating content? If so, creating content related to the Learning Pathway Project or the 6.5 release is our priority today.

Considering the time constraints associated with Contributor Day, it would be beneficial if you could develop a script for one of the learning pathway lessons. Alternatively, you could craft a script focused on one of the upcoming 6.5 features. If you have the capacity to complete the recording of the lesson when you return home, please let us know.

Start by searching for a piece of content you’d like to work on in the Recent Release project board or a lesson from one of the User or Developer learning pathways. Once found, you can assign yourself as one of the contributors to the lesson and mention how you will contribute. You can add the script to the GitHub Issue once it is completed.

Join an in-person discussion with @westnz to gain practical insights into lesson creation.

Content Translation

Are you interested in translating content? If so, then translate the content mentioned in the LearnWP Content – Localization GitHub Project Board. We have some high-priority content that needs to be translated. There are a few courses about onboarding contributors specifically that will help in the WordPress mentorship program:

You can learn how to get started in content localization in this handbook page.

Content Reviews

Reviewing content waiting to be published is also a priority for us.

Start by finding a piece of content to review in our content development board. This GitHub view has filtered all content waiting for reviews before it is published. Follow the team’s Guidelines for reviewing content and leave your reviews right there in GitHub.

Subject Matter Expert

subject-matter expert is someone who has extensive knowledge in a particular field or area and can provide advice, guidance, and direction in that subject. If you would like to help vet topics, please visit the Vetting Topic Ideas handbook page.

Triage Developer Issues

Are you a developer interested in working on issues for the Learn website? If so, then working through our Website Development project board is our priority today.

Start by reviewing issues “In Review.” Any help you can provide regarding issues “In Progress” would be great, too. But in general, any attention you can give to any issue would be much appreciated.

If there are enough interested Developers, then we can also create a developer-focused working group so that they can focus on related issues.

Cross-team collaboration opportunities  

Discuss or share ideas of how the Training Team could collaborate more with other Make WordPress Teams such as Marketing, Documentation etc.
