Design Training

I have been a high level design trainer and educator for over 20 years, as well as graphic designer for over 30 years, and find this is a perfect combination to enable me to help both individuals and small businesses with their personal and professional development and business growth, through training.

I used to teach face-to-face design training and absolutely loved being in the learning environment but since the pandemic the delivery and methods have had to changed.

I can continue to offer face-to-face training small businesses in small groups but this needs to adhere to the government guidelines and so online delivery is a more acceptable way to keep everyone safe. It is however, in the world of Zoom, Google Meets and Microsoft Teams a different era of learning.

I am currently creating some new material for a brand new online course, specifically to help all small businesses with their design and marketing needs, ‘The Essential Design Guide for Small Business Owners‘ – so keep a look out and if you want to know more then please sign up to my newsletter and be the first the get the goodies.

Types of Design Training

  • 1. In-House Training
  • 2. Group Training Course
  • 3. Online Courses

I deliver on-site design training to small businesses or live through Zoom, to an individual or small group which can be a one off session or developed as a training course, ensuring we adhere to government and your own HR guidelines.

Face-to-face training is very effective as you can absorb a lot in a short space of time, however online training can be just as effective but the delivery needs to be broken down into small learning chunks of time.

Who is it for?

This is bespoke training and unique to your business, this type of training is ideal for a specific need and can be tailored to you, your level of understanding and skill.

Having discussed your needs and designed a course to meet their specify business requirements which can cover a range of topics:

  • Social Media – Basics for your Business
  • Adobe Creative Suite: InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Design: Graphic Design Basics
  • Online Design: Using Canva

Individual session

  • One 1-2-1  2hr session @ £175
  • 10% discount on further sessions booked as a course

Group Sessions

  • One 3hr Group session (max 5 people) @ £350
  • 10% discount on further sessions booked as a course.

This can run as a course of 2 or 3 sessions, ideally booked within 1-7 days of each session, therefore progress can be assessed, troubleshooting issues can be dealt with and confidence-building is intrinsically embedded in this type of delivery.

Currently these courses are on hold and are being developed as part of an online suite of courses as a response to the pandemic. I am sorry for any inconvenience cause and if you are interested in future course I will be launching then please sign up to my newsletter or get in touch.
