PARK Academy Design Leadership Programmes
To make sure all students will be able to contribute equally they must speak English well, have at least five years of experience in the design field and are graduated BA or higher.
During the last 25+ years we have gained a lot of experience in design management. This is what we are going to share. Just remember that the content we provide and the way to educate it, is our idea and we would like to keep it that way. The assignments that will be delivered are property of the students; make good use of them!
We deliver this content to the student personally. This means that the content should not be copied and passed on to others. It is just there to apply it in the student’s daily work…
We will share lots of great content, about the students’ and our experience; we will also create new content together. To guarantee an open atmosphere, we expect the student to treat this content confidential.
Access to the PARK Academy Livebook
Access to online programme materials counts for 12 months after the final meeting. After 12 months a subscription will be applied.
To guarantee great value from discussions and sharing experiences, we maintain a minimum of 8 participants per programme. If we do not have this amount 5 weeks before the start of the programme we will postpone the start of the programme ± 2 months. So, the 2nd meeting then becomes the 1st meeting and every meeting shifts this way. We only have to plan a new Final Meeting.
Once you signed the order confirmation the student is ‘in’. If you do need to cancel anyway before we have started, we will charge 25% of the fee.
If, for whatever reason, the student cannot make one of the meetings, we expect them to catch up: read through the module, discuss the team assignment with their team and ask questions when needed. If the student is absent on more than one meeting, the student needs to continue in the next programme, to be able to finish the programme and earn a diploma.
It is possible to send a replacement to take over the education programme. This option is available if the student has attended no more than 1 meeting. The replacement will then finish the entire remainder of the programme. You also need to ensure that the replacement has a similar profile as the student that is replaced. In any other case, PARK will not refund the fee for the programme.
We assume that nobody wants to voluntarily stop this programme. However, due to severe reasons, private or business, sometimes this is inevitable. If the student needs to stop right away, we suggest that the student continues and finishes the programme in the next available programme that we will run. This means that we will not refund the fee for the programme. To ensure a coherent learning experience we limit this opportunity till only the next programme.
We take lots of great pictures during programmes. We are happy to share these with you and the student, and we might use them for some of our marketing efforts.
We do not like conflicts, nor do we like detailed contracts. If issues arise, we will handle it together…
