Our aim is that you or your child finishes the course with a great accuracy and speed and that you also enjoy your touch typing journey. We hope that you will use this wonderful new skill to get through work faster at school and work.
Final speed will depend on a number of factors, the main ones being natural ability, age and also how much practice you do. Speed will increase naturally the more a person practices and so we see speeds go up towards the end of the course. We do set certain speed exercises throughout the course, and we hope that most students finish the course with at least a speed of 30wpm. Many of our students finish with speeds in excess of this.
At the end of the course, we will send you a final feedback, together with a certificate and details of our ‘carry on typing’ courses.
We encourage all of our students to carry on touch typing with us. We know from experience that once the course has finished, students may forget to carry on practicing. For students that have finished the course but would like to increase their speed further, we recommend our ‘Carry on Course’. This is a 3 month lesson plan, focusing on speed work, dictation, symbols, numbers, with tutor feedback once a month. If you decide not to sign up for this course, you can use the programme independently for 3 months to practice.
