Touch Typing for Children
Welcome to Type IT!, the home of touch typing for children. These days if you can’t type then you can’t do the job! Touch typing can be fun, engaging and relatively quick to learn too.
We specialise in teaching children to touch type. Over the last six years we have taught over 1000 students how to touch type, working with children from the age of eight upwards.
All our courses are dyslexic and dyspraxic friendly
Touch typing frees the brain to be creative. It speeds up the process of getting your ideas and thoughts into a document. Touch typing can help children and students to complete their homework and coursework in super-quick time. An average university student can save over 300 hours of coursework time by touch typing.
Perfect for Bronze or Silver DofE Awards
Why not learn touch typing for your Duke of Edinburgh award? It's a skill you can learn over three months with weekly hour long sessions. Our staff are happy to work as DofE assessors.
Weekly Term Time Lessons
Join any time for weekly term time lessons, Monday - Saturday.
Start any time during the term. These sessions give the best results – a slow, steady pace with plenty of time for practice in between. Lessons after school or on Saturdays.
1-Week Intensive Courses
We take a maximum of five students per Intensive Course. Perfect for a family or a group of friends - a private class at no extra cost!
Our Intensive Courses run at half term and during school holidays.
Advanced & Refresher Courses
Perfect for moving on to the next level or for brushing up on skills learnt so far.
After completing a Type IT! course you may be ready to increase your speed or to learn additional skills like number keys or paragraphs.
Touch Typing in Schools
We run touch typing classes in a number of schools in the Harrow area.
These classes give kids a great opportunity to learn a new skill - before school, after school or at lunchtime.
"My children both really enjoyed the Type IT programme and made significant progress in their ability to touch type and in their commitment to practice regularly. Thank you for all your help."
“The course was extremely useful for a 14 year old, she learned quickly and saw the value in the touch typing technique from the very first day and was motivated.”
“A good number of our pupils made excellent progress and thoroughly enjoyed the course!”
Penny Brown, Teacher, York House School
“It was good fun, the people were really friendly and nice and I was surprised at how well I could type. This will really benefit me now and in the future due to the difficulties I have in writing and holding a pen. I would say – go and do the course, it is good fun!”
Sophie, aged 13
“I enjoyed the way all the teachers are patient with you. I LOVE LEARNING TO TYPE!”

"Learning how to touch type has been so good for George. It has boosted his self esteem and he has acquired a skill he will use for the rest of his life. I have been recommending Type IT to everyone. Thank you for being so supportive and lovely to my boy."
