Course Structure

The course consists of a two hour lesson, with breaks every 20 minutes or so. We also have a snack break half way through. Every lesson is documented and each child’s progress is monitored. The children will be encouraged to do additional daily practice at home before the next day (approximately 30 minutes). This practice will reinforce what they have learnt and is essential to achieving a good end result.

What will my child achieve in the course?

As with any sport or musical instrument, success is down to practice. Learning to touch type is no exception. Your child will leave the course with a good knowledge of all the main keys on the keyboard. Every child is different, and there will some children that will finish the course touch typing all of the keys with a good speed and others may need to finish learning some of the final keys at home. Every child will have the software to use at home and so can take continue to practice at home so that they can increase their fluency and typing speed dramatically.

We also offer further lessons for speed and performance work.
