UIUX Design Curriculum
How long does "The Talk" usually last?
Typically, "The Talk" takes about three hours from start to finish, including breaks. However, the host for the event may have other activities scheduled before, after, or during extended breaks.
Do I need to accompany my child to "The Talk"?
Yes, "The Talk" is just as useful for the parents as it is for the kids. In "The Talk", I cover various topics crucial to helping your child progress through the next stages in their development. All teens must have an adult present to attend. For the boys, both moms and dads may attend. For the girls, only moms may attend. Aunts, uncles, grandparents, guardians, and other adults significant in the care of these teens are welcome, but only females are allowed at the girls' events.
Is "The Talk" seperated by gender?
Yes! "The Talk" is seperated by gender. The events for the boys and girls are similar for the first two sessions, with some slight differences. Given the content of the last session it varies greatly. If you are a parent of both a boy and a girls of this age, attending both events would be helpful.
At what age should my child attend "The Talk"?
"The Talk" seminars are designed for three targeted ages: 4th-6th grade (entering middle school), 6th-8th grade (late middle school), and 8th-10th grade (transition to and early high school). While teens all develope at different speeds, it is generally recommended that the age span of participants in a particular event not be more than three years. For more details about content of the seminars for each age group, please visit the "Age Specifics" page.
Will food be provided at "The Talk"?
This depends on the host/hostess and location. Typically, a meal or snacks are provided during breaks.
What do I need to do to prepare my child for "The Talk"?
It is important to prepare your child for the general topics that will be presented in "The Talk" and let them understand what to expect. It is vital that the kids are not suprised in the last moment and have time to ask questions and discuss anxiety before the session. We are wanting to help them be as comfortable and ready to listen as possible. Say something simple and direct like, "This Friday evening, you and I are going to get to go to a seminar that will prepare us for you being a teenager. We will learn about puberty and sex, keeping you healthy, and how I can be the best mom/dad possible for you. I am excited about it but also a little nervous. How does it make you feel?"
What if I am unable to attend any scheduled sessions of "The Talk"?
Presentations and sessions of "The Talk" can be found on the Seminars page of the website. If no dates are listed that you can attend, continue to check back frequently as new dates are added. By subscribing to the website, you will receive email notifications of public events when they are scheduled. If you have a group of 10 children or more interested in "The Talk", consider booking a private event where a date and location can be arranged to fit your specific needs.
What maturity level is "The Talk" and what terminology is used?
Because "The Talk" contains portions that cover anatomy and sex, some diagrams and pictures are used in the presentation. However, scientific names are used to describe anatomy and no images presented are inappropriate or suggestive. Do be prepared for descriptions of bodily processes in detail using vocabulary accessible for this age.

UIUX Web Design Accelerator
Batch 1: Web Design
Our students were tasked to design a website of their own.
The purpose of the assignment was to integrate the skills that the students have learnt during the course and apply it on their personal projects.
Some examples of the websites designed by the students included their personal portfolios, blogs about their hobbies or businesses they were trying to start.
As a Business For Good, we offer financial assistance to students who need them.
As of April 2020, we have also extended the financial assistance scheme to those whose employment have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We also provide an interest free installment plan for students.
Speak with our programs team to find out more about financing options.

Do I need a technical background to join?
Hatch’s programs are designed to be open and accessible to all. As the saying goes, if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough. Our instructors are industry practitioners who can break down important concepts for students regardless of background. Bring your curiosity, enthusiasm and a desire to learn. Leave the rest to us!
What is the difference in schedule for the full-time and part-time programmes?
The 5-week full-time program is designed for students with more immediate employment needs. Classes take place Mondays to Fridays over office hours. The 15-week part-time program is suitable for those balancing other commitments or would like to finish the training before making the career switch. Classes take place three times a week on two weekday nights and Saturday mornings.
How will classes be held?
The classes will be conducted in a hybrid format of both physical and online classes. For physical classes, it will be held in a sufficiently large venue to ensure safe distancing among students. The classroom will also be disinfected in between lessons.
What are the financing options availables?
We believe that no one should be deprived of quality education due to their financial difficulties. Hatch offers financial assistance to students from low-income households. As of April 2020, we have also extended the scheme to include those whose employment have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We also provide the option of interest free installment plans for students.
What’s the difference between Hatch Immersive and Hatch Accelerator?
The Hatch Immersieve is a train to match programme that equips students with skills in Digital Marketing or UIUX and upon completion of the course, matches them to a prospective company for internship. This allows them to directly apply what they learn with us and apply it in their internships. This is suitable for learners who are looking at a mid-career switch or are interested in the UIUX industry.
