The website design platform Wix has said it's planning to bring its Wix Playground Academy to Israel, where the company is based, this July. The program is meant for design students and freelance web designers in the early stages of their careers.

The program has already been held twice since 2018 at company offices in New York City, an online version of the course was recently conducted in Europe and some of the academy's 150 graduates have already found jobs in high-tech.

Wix's Israel program will take place online this summer. During the intensive five-week session, students will meet (virtually) with some leading designers from around the world and be mentored by industry leaders and designers from the Wix design studio.

Students will learn advanced web design, code for designers, animation, content creation and user experience (UX) design. Past lecturers have included award-winning designers like Jessica Walsh, Debbie Millman and Alexandra Zsigmond.

Over the course of the session students will work on building their personal online design portfolios, submitting them at the end of the program to a panel of Israeli and international industry figures.

Applicants are accepted to the program based on their portfolios and on interviews. The application process is free as is the program itself for those accepted.

Wix cannot guarantee the placement of graduates of the course. It is in the company's interest, of course, to expose young website designers to its platform: While Wix allows people to create websites without knowing how to code, design is the most important component of any site.

Wix is traded on the Nasdaq Stock Market at a market cap of $16 billion and has 200 million registered users. The company has about 5,000 employees, 2,600 of them in Israel. Company headquarters are in Tel Aviv.
