Adobe @ TAFE NSW


The Nepean Arts & Design Centre – TAFE NSW, Western Sydney Region in Kingswood was the venue for a special Adobe in Education event for TAFE NSW teachers on Thursday 28th June.


This was an information session based on how and why Adobe Creative Cloud applications are making a positive difference in Education & Training across the globe. Over 40 TAFE teachers registered for this event from a range of schools around western and central Sydney.
