How we can help you
Learning to touch type is not easy to do on your own. From our experience, many learners may give up their courses without adequate support. We can help you succeed…
Our online remote course is completely different to any other course available. Our tutor supported course does just that – your own dedicated tutor will email you weekly feedback and guide you through the course, giving you encouragement and help to complete the course with a great result.
You'll be supported throughout by one of our experienced touch typing tutors
A Course That Gets Great Results
All of our online courses and centre based courses are designed for every individual user. Our online tutor supported remote course is structured so you will be doing a little bit of practice every day as well as completing your main lesson once or twice a week. You can complete your course as a fast track programme in 3 or 6 weeks or take your time and complete it over 12 weeks. What you can be sure of is that you will have your own dedicated personal typing tutor to guide and motivate you all the way and give you the very best result.
Options to Suit Everybody!
Alternatively, if you may prefer to ‘Go Solo’ and complete the remote course on your own without a tutor, we have a £99 course that is perfect for you! We also offer centre based classes if you prefer face to face interaction.

“Since I learnt to touch type with Wendy at Type IT! I have been amazed how much time I’ve saved. Not only was my old typing style wasting time, but I was also unable to really think about what I wanted to write as I was so busy thinking about where the keys were! All professionals should learn to touch type, it’s an amazing skill and Wendy makes it such fun – it also helps you look super professional in the office!”

“Three of us signed up for the Type It course and we were delighted with how quickly we all progressed – from single finger typists to touch typing in a matter of weeks. Under Wendy’s enthusiastic and patient guidance, every lesson was enjoyable and we have gained an invaluable life skill that will be of so much benefit in the future. We would have no hesitation in recommending this course to all ages and just wish we had signed up earlier.”
Chris (48), Ami (16) and Georgie (14)
“Thank you for being so patient. I really enjoyed the course. As a Nurse working in a busy surgery I am typing a great deal every day so the ability to touch type has improved my work day immensely. I would advise anyone who does a lot of typing to do this course as it will definitely make your work easier.”
