Creative Access and IT training at Sync

At Sync, personal development and training are at the core of our philosophy. In the wake of a new national lockdown we want to make sure that we serve our business and creative community through this difficult time.

We want to enable people to learn, connect and collaborate through technology.

Whilst our in store training centre may be closed for now, we are still committed to creating accessible training opportunities for the people of Manchester (and beyond…)

We’re happy to announce we will be hosting a series of webinars that will be running every Thursday across January and February 2021.

In our latest series of skills-based webinars, we focus on  supporting businesses and opening up new opportunities for people through the development of digital skills. Whether you’re looking for work, on furlough, or want to bring new skills into your business, these sessions are for you.

Covering everything from communication and collaboration, through to complex design principles, these sessions are designed to promote and enhance key digital skills.

If you would like to follow along with the Adobe sessions, you will simply need access to a computer, and have a live or trial version of Adobe Creative Cloud, with the relevant app installed prior to the start of the session. If you’ve not currently got an active subscription with Adobe, you can apply for a free trial here.
