Testimonials

I have studied a course with XChange Training before and it is extremely well organised, friendly staff and has a good work environment.

Victoria Hassett, ETM Group, InDesign - 1 Day Introduction

Really useful content presented in an understandable yet comprehensive manner. Covered a lot without being overwhelming. Fantastic and very helpful training and great tips on shortcuts too!

Carley Willis, UKTI, InDesign - 2 Day Introduction

Excellent facilities, close to the station. The tutor really understood the program and the work of designers. He taught more than was required and answered advanced questions with knowledge and understanding. The course will help me enormously with my work and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend XChange Training to my fellow colleagues and friends.

Gary Stafford, Shoreline Housing Partnership, InDesign - 1 Day Introduction

An outstanding training course led by a very knowledgeable and insightful tutor. Thoroughly enjoyed my time and will take forward all new knowledge to my workplace and personal life too. Really enjoyed this, thanks very much!

Emma McLean, University of Strathclyde, Adobe InDesign - Two Day Introduction

Our tutor was very knowledgeable and very patient whilst training. He answered all questions no matter how small. Not only did he show us the Adobe way but also faster shortcuts to ensure workflow on the system is better. I would recommend this training to anyone remotely interested in print or digital design.

Marie Kinvig, Heron & Brearley, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

Brilliant two days. I was sceptical about how much we would learn in two days but now feel like I am definitely ready and eager to use InDesign on my own. The facilities were great and the class size perfect and it is brilliant that we receive a book to help us through post-course use of the software. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Emma Bedford, Wem Town Hall Trust, InDesign - Two Day Introduction

Trainer was very knowledgeable and professional - good amount of bespoke content covered.

Victoria Portwin, Gottex, InDesign - 1 Day Bespoke
