Sync offers fully-funded places on acclaimed digital skills courses during the latest national lockdown
One of Manchester's outstanding tech companies has announced it will be supporting the local sector once more during the third national lockdown - offering free spots on some of its acclaimed training courses.
Sync's Deansgate site - a three-storey tech shop with an Apple desk, training suite and conference centre - has been the city centre's vital support hub right throughout the pandemic, remaining on hand to keep Digital Mancunia ticking.
But aside from the provision of essential repair services, Sync has also kept the local community educated - hosting a series of insightful training sessions on software and applications.
Despite the latest lockdown, these webinars aren't stopping anytime soon. In fact, some are even continuing without the price tag.
With Blue Monday on the horizon, Sync is aiming to lift the spirits of local business owners and entrepreneurs with an exclusive offer of limited free course placements.
15 fully-funded spots are up for grabs on Sync's 3-day foundation course for Adobe XD - which is ordinarily normally priced at £195+VAT.
The training sessions run for two hours per day, offering priceless insight for designers, product managers, developers, or anyone hoping to build brilliant digital products (such as websites and mobile apps).
Participants will perform a series of examples and short exercises, learning the methods, techniques and tools required to plan and execute a project using the UX framework successfully.
Tom Crump, Head of Sales at Sync, explained the thinking behind the offer.
"With the latest lockdown, we wanted to offer a form of support to businesses by offering fully funded places, If you are a business or employee interested in this training, all you need to do is explain why you think you might benefit from it to access the course."
To apply, you can get in touch with the Sync team online.
The courses will be taking place from February 2 - February 4.
In addition to the Adobe XD sessions, Sync is also offering skills-based training courses that focus on how to continue working and communicating through lockdown.
They’re all free to join - and will be conducted every Thursday from January 14 until February 25.
To get involved, you simply need to register your interest online.
Tom stated: "This is a way for us to help support Manchester businesses who may have had to furlough staff.
"Sync is passionate about personal development and working with our local community to come out of this next lockdown stronger than ever."
