As part of our Adobe Creative Campus we have a group of talented Adobe Digital Coaches who support students and staff with anything Adobe.

These current students and recent graduates are employed by Swinburne and engage in peer mentoring, run workshops, lead student initiatives and support the Swinburne community during drop-in sessions.

The Adobe Digital Coaches are also available to work with teachers using Adobe applications within curriculum. Staff are able to book the Adobe Digital Coaches to work as mentors in class, to run a workshop or to answer questions during a drop-in session.
