Student feedback from the Easter 2014 touch typing course
From the parents:
It has given him the opportunity to be with other children with writing problems and he will be able to start typing the correct way. The teachers are very prepared. Five stars!
The course provides structured learning and is well planned. It is good for the cost.
I like the ratio of staff to pupils and the length of the course. I would like there to be more courses!
It all worked well and the cost was fair.
They have learnt some touch typing and are very enthusiastic about it. I love the calm, friendly environment – and so do my kids! Thank you very much. They have had a super week learning touch typing. They are very keen and I’m, so happy about that. They run in each morning. We’ll be back for another course!

I have learned how to touch type. I liked the activities when we were in our teams and were asked questions. The room is pleasant without distractions. Girl aged 11
It made me realise I’m never too old to learn to touch type. I enjoyed the variety of software and doing it with my children. I sometimes got frustrated with the frequent breaks as I wanted to get back to typing! The teachers were very helpful, warm and friendly and I cannot fault the organisation and administration of the course.
