Touch Typing for Children

Whether they’re in at home, in the classroom, doing homework, or typing up coursework, they’re never more than a few paces from a keyboard.

Typing is now an essential life skill and yet many schools don’t offer lessons as part of the curriculum and expect children to be able to use these devices effectively.  The sad truth is, that many children cannot type adequately and are painfully slow or constantly having to correct their work because of errors. We regularly encounter fast typists but their quality of typing is poor.

Now is the perfect time to learn this essential skill

By investing in one of our remote touch-typing courses, you will be giving your child the essential tools they need for school, college, university and ultimately in their future place of work.

Our experienced touch-typing tutors are there to guide your child through the course from beginning to end. Don’t hesitate – they will truly thank you for it!
