A private training session for your team. Groups can be of any size, at a location of your choice including our training centres.

This course will show you what you need to know to start creating social media content that will compel user engagement.

We will start by looking at what’s trending right now and breakdown how they are successful. The morning will be focused on static graphics using Adobe Photoshop, whereas the afternoon will concentrate on moving graphics using Adobe Animate.

In both sessions, you will be guided through document setup, asset management and how to use the programs effectively to get the best results with minimum effort.

This is a hands on course and after being shown how, you will be given assets, a brief and with tutor support, the opportunity to create your own graphics.

After creation you will see how to publish your work; optimising it for a variety of social media platforms.

Our Social Media Content Creation course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London. We also offer private training at a location of your choice or via Virtual Classroom.
