What are parents saying about the S'COOL?

“Our kids have more access to photo-taking devices than ever before, yet rarely do we think of the skill and creativity they could be bringing to them. This course turned my child's device into something he could make art and tell stories with. It's really encouraged him to experiment and has increased his creative confidence. ”


“The course was awesome. My children really enjoyed working on it and also bonded doing some of the activities together. They had great fun while learning new skills. It was a great addition to our lock down routine and we didn’t want it to end! ”

  • Do kids need a big camera?

    Nope, a phone or tablet is ideal. This is not a beginners DSLR course, it's not a 'how to use your camera' thing, it's actually much bigger concepts of photography that we learn. We will support any student that needs help with whatever camera they are on.

  • I have more than one child can they join too?

    Sure, as long as you are in the same household they can join in, no need to pay twice, or have a different login, simply use the same one. We have several families with 3 kids taking part for 4 weeks for only £20 (PHOTO S'COOL or £25 (STOP MOTION S'COOL) A total bargain!.

  • Can I get a refund if the course isn’t for me?

    Due to the digital nature, all courses from elevate are non-refundable. Please be sure that the course curriculum matches your needs before you join the S'COOL

  • But...my child has lots of school work

    It can be exhausting! This is a wonderful break from that pressure, a chance to use the other side of the brain, to get creative, be a kid! This is doing, not just learning.

  • How long will it take?

    It takes at least 2-3 hours each week, but some have got the photography bug and are spending much much longer (days in fact). It really depends on your child and how much time they want to spend on it. Photography is am amazing skill that will last them a lifetime, and this course if broken down with all the fluff cut out, so they get the best teaching, and the fastest results without the frustration!

  • Is there anything we have to be online for at a set time?

    Not really! The only thing that is at a set time are the Facebook LIVE sessions I do, most kids like to watch this live as they want to see if their work will be selected and discussed! These are at 3pm on a Tuesday and Friday for the PHOTO S'COOL and 3pm on a Tuesday for the STOP MOTION S'COOL, but can be watched as a replay at any time.

  • What is the age limit?

    Most students fall between 7 and 16 years

  • Will my child need my help / time?

    This has been designed specifically for this weird time, and so no, your child will be able to get on with everything without your input. The only part they may need help with is uploading to the Private Facebook Group, most parents are joining the group with their accounts.

Social proof: testimonials

“TESTIMONIALS KIDS TAKEOVER PHOTO S’COOL (Cohort 3) It has been a total joy to watch my son develop a skill with so much enthusiasm, pride and fun. There is no way he would have been as interested in photography without the 'KIDS TAKEOVER' courses. I could not recommend this course and Liz highly enough!”


“Both of my children (ages 10 and 7) have really enjoyed this course. It's full of great information and challenges to keep them interested. Liz and her colleagues host fantastic live sessions on Facebook to provide feedback throughout the course at regular intervals to help to keep them motivated. I feel that we've all picked up some photography tips along the way! ”


“This course really helped my son to gain confidence setting up photos, to prepare him for the start of his photography GCSE in September. ”


“A focussed and exciting course on photography for all stages, ages and abilities. The whole family got involved as it was so fun and interesting. I never knew how to focus my camera on my phone so loved learning alongside my daughter. The tutors are friendly and passionate about their work. Creating fab memories - thankyou”
