Please note that this course will be going ahead as normal – just remotely.

The Digital Jersey Academy is inviting applicants to its latest Photoshop Course, which begins in February, and comprises weekly lunchtime classes over 6 weeks.

It is being led by Lead Design Lecturer, Sara Pike, who has a decade worth of graphic design experience.

In that time she’s worked in-house for several global brands across a variety of industries including as Head of Design for Northern Europe at Specsavers; as a designer for Australia’s for number one prestige skincare brand, Jurlique; and Europe’s largest online beauty retailer,

The course is available for anybody looking to improve their graphic design skills. Companies looking to upskill members of their own workforce are also invited to consider nominating somebody to attend.

The once weekly sessions, each 1.5 hours long, are at lunchtime to allow candidates to fit them around their work. They will also get access to a digital marketing platform packed with additional resources.
