News.T4L. As part of our enterprise agreement with Adobe, all public schools students are now licenced to install the latest Creative Cloud suite for their BYOD or home computer (Windows/OSX) free of charge.


This brings students in line with the versions of Creative Cloud programs available to staff for work-at-home and for school computers. Unlike previous versions, students will need to update their licence annually and will therefore be able to do this as long as they remain public school students. They will also be required to create an Adobe ID account, which for students under the age of 13, will require the permission and assistance of their parent/guardian. To assist with and better explain these changes, an FAQ has been developed and included at the OnTheHub store.

It is possible to create pupils who can be their own critics and are interested and motivated in trying to make their writing as clear and creative as possible for their readers.
