Blended Learning Creative Training With A Difference What’s The Challenge? Software packages like Photoshop are becoming more and more complex with every version. As each new feature is added to the product it’s something else the user needs to learn and that means more time spent on training and development.
At the same time organisations are under an ever increasing drive to reduce spend, not only in terms of direct course costs but also in terms of travel, hotels and other expenses. Not to mention pressure on users not to be away from the office too often.
How Do We Help? We have worked hard to remodel our curriculum resulting in a blended learn- ing solution that uses the most appro- priate learning model for each topic.
More complex topics which are either difficult to grasp or which are the under- laying foundations for other modules are covered in a classroom environment.
In addition to these, topics which are either less challenging or which cover specialist areas that not everybody needs are covered via online learning modules.
This allows you to cover far more content than would be possible on a standard classroom based course and best of all the cost is kept low so you are spending more than 40% less per day of learning than you would on a pure classroom based course.
The Benefits Learn More
Our blended courses cover roughly twice as much material as the nearest comparable classroom based courses
Minimise Down Time
The structure of the courses means that for every day spent out of the office you get 2 days of learning.
Reduce Training Costs
The courses are substantially more cost effective than an equivalent pure class- room course resulting in savings in your training budget.
Reduce Expenses
As you are only away for 1 day in every 2 it reduces travel and accommodation expenses.
Continuous Development
On a regular classroom training course you walk out of the room and more often than not the learning ends there.
With our blended learning courses the classroom session momentum is con- tinued via the online learning module resulting in much better adoption of the techniques and skills learned.
London Centre Our London training centre is located at the Islington Business Design Centre just one stop from Kings Cross station and only a few hundred metres from the Angel tube station (Northern Line).
The centre is professionally equipped, with the latest version of Creative Suite, and is surrounded by a wide range of bars, cafe’s and restaurants right outside. There is also (paid) parking onsite, and a Hilton Hotel right on the doorstep for those coming from further afield.
We are also able to offer the classroom modules at your location which can be a cost effective method for larger groups.
York Centre Our York centre is located at the bottom of Bishopthorpe Road just 5 minutes walk from both the City Centre and York railway station.
As with London the centre is profes- sionally equipped and fibre cabling into the building means we get excellent internet speeds. Free roadside parking is available just 5 minutes walk away as is the main York station.
York is also a nice venue if you are trav- elling from further away and don’t want the stress and cost of going to central London. The town is very popular with tourists, and good quality accomodation can be found locally from as little as £40 per night including breakfast.

What is Photoshop CS6 Certification Bootcamp
The most comprehensive Photoshop CS6 training package available anywhere in the UK. The Photoshop CS6 Certification Bootcamp is only available either directly through Highlander or via our approved partners.
Photoshop CS6 Certification Bootcamp combines 4 days of instructor led classroom training taught by our ex- perienced team of Adobe Authorised Photoshop Instruc- tors, together with an extensive range of online learning material.
The classroom courses are available either via our public classes which run regularly in London and York, or as a closed course taught at your own location.
Our online learning material is delivered through the learning management system and combines video tuto- rials, hands on exercises, real world examples, Photoshop skills tests, not to mention a whole load of useful hints, suggestions, links, and instructor led support forums where you can ask questions.
You can access the online learning material from any- where with an internet connection and have 6 months access to this following completion of the classroom modules.
The Adobe Certified Expert Exam
Once you have completed the materials and had plenty of time to practice with Photoshop, its time for the ACE exam. The Bootcamp includes a voucher for the Adobe Certified Expert exam (worth over £120), which is valid for 12 months from taking the course. You can use the voucher to take the exam at any Pearson Vue Testing Centre throughout the UK (there are lots of them), and once you pass can use the Adobe Certified Expert logo below
ACE or ACA - What’s the difference?
The Adobe Certified Expert exams are the original exam offered by Adobe to certify a good level of competancy in a product, and are aimed at profession- als and are well recognised within the industry. This should not be confused with the newer Adobe Certified Associ- ate exam, which only reflects a very basic level of understanding about the product, and is aimed more at schools preparing students for their first job.
What you can expect
There are a wide range of factors to consider when choosing a creative train- ing provider such as what experience do they have, what is covered in the course, what support do I get in developing my skills after the course. With Highlander you get the UK’s most complete Photoshop training experience all backed up by our 15 year track record.
The Trainers All of our trainers hold Adobe Certified Instructor and Adobe Certified Expert status on the product and have years of experience both training on Photoshop, and using the product in the real world.
The Facilities Our training centre is located within Islington Business Design Centre one of London’s most stylish conference venues, which plays host to over 80 exhibitions and 250 conferences every year.
As a result the centre benefits from a wide range of services including:
Food & Drink Hot and cold drinks are provided throughout the day, and when it comes to lunch there is a great selection of cafe’s, restaurants and sandwich bars right outside the front door, not to men- tion an in-house canteen.
Reception / Concierge Service There is a full reception and concierge service in the building which can help organise everything from transport and accommodation through to theatre tickets for the evenings.
Disabled Access The building is fully enabled for access by persons with disability. We have lifts to all floors and disabled toilet facilities on all levels.
Accommodation The 5 star Hilton Hotel sits alongside the centre, and the popular Jury’s Inn is just a 5 minute walk around the corner.
Location and Travel Situated in Islington, one of London’s most vibrant areas, the centre is located within 2 miles of both the City and the West End, and is ideally situated for both transport and local entertainment.

Cross and Euston, we are serviced by nu- merous bus routes and are conveniently located outside the congestion charge zone.
The venue benefits from on-site car park- ing (charged at £20 per day), and has full access for those with disabilities.
The Online Learning System The Learning Management System (LMS) which powers our online learning mod- ules is a proven scalable solution offering a range of features to help you master InDesign quickly and efficiently.
The online modules include features such as expert video tutorials, extensive sample files, and hands on exercise files for you to try out the skills you have learnt. There are also online skills tests for you to see just how well you have got to grips with things and how much more practice is needed.
Finally you get 6 months of instructor led support via the course forums where you can not only pick the instructors brains with your own problems, but also learn by seeing what issues other students have experienced and how they were resolved.
