Graphic Design & Web Design 2018 Master Bundle

Mike Davies
3.5 10/12/2017
What I would highlight: I feel grateful with Learning247 for such an amazing selection of training courses. I have always wanted to get into graphic design. Thanks to Learning247 I am now designing mugs, T-shirts, posters, and so much more. The training videos are very easy to use and offer outstanding explanation of every program. Adobe Illustrator was my favorite course and I was able to design and get printed a 7 foot tall self standing poster for my friends business. A huge thank you to everyone at Learning247.

This means that UK Distance Learning and Publishing has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by UK Distance Learning and Publishing to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications.
