A web developer will obviously need web design skills. If you have any qualifications it is well worth mentioning them, even if they were internal work training courses. You will also need to discuss any previous work experience in this field or a related one. You will be expected to be creative and so any way that you can illustrate this would be useful. It is likely that you will be working with a team and so mention any team work skills that you have or experience of working in teams. You may need to be able to work with a customer or internal staff member and complete a design to their specifications. It is therefore important to show that you have the skills and experience to be able to do this. You may need to keep to deadlines and so it worth mentioning if you are good at doing this.
