Individual and Team Training

I have been a high level 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 businesses with their personal and professional development and business growth, through training.

The courses are designed to taking a multi-sensory approach and will always ensure differentiation occurs.

I use slides, a projector, provide hand-outs, demonstrate techniques using Apple Mac and assess knowledge and understanding through question and answer and practical application – so you are supported and are learning through doing!

If there are multiple sessions within a course, a review, troubleshooting and extension activities will always take place in the sessions, to check understanding and development of skills. It is important to me that you are confident in using the design software and have gained an understanding of design, on completing the training courses.

I offer Three Types of Training…

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

I deliver on-site training in your business to an individual or group which can be a one off session or developed as a training course.

Face-to-face training is more effective than simply following a webinar, as you are physically and psychologically engaged in the training. These workshops are normally a week apart to enable you to develop your skills and review your progress.

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. This can be designed for an individual or a group, and will be delivered at your premises at a time to suit you!
