Does my child need my permission to do this course?
If your child is under 16 years, they will need your permission to join this course. You will also need to confirm that you are happy for your child to receive course-related emails. Students aged 16 years and over do not require parental permission. When your child registers they will be required to add your email and we will then request your permission.
Will my child be expected to do homework on this course?
Yes, approximately 1.5 hours per week.
How does this differ from what they learn at school?
Adobe Generation provides two key benefits to students. First are the technical skills they learn in their chosen field (e.g. using colour), second are the life and work skills they acquire along the way (e.g. critiquing work). Whilst some of these skills may overlap with the curriculum, it will only strengthen their confidence and ability. Beyond this, the opportunity to learn from practicing creatives – some of the best in the world – is a unique opportunity.
