From the parents:
It gave my son more confidence and I liked getting the feedback on his progress.
It made them more confident about keyboard use and great practice for copying from texts. There was a nice mixture of fun activity and focused work. My eight year old daughter found the activities great fun. The venue is excellent with easy access and it is great there is no problem parking. The cost is reasonable.
I liked the course for my son very much.
It was great the way you got students interacting. By doing the course in a condensed form they could see results and it was very organised.
It gave my children confidence to continue touch typing and I liked the friendly teachers. The timing is good. Well paced. Good balance between learning and fun.
My wife and I feel it is good value for money.
It has definitely helped my three children and is good for all ages. Could have been closer to home but the facilities all excellent and the cost was well worth it.
Fantastic course which has definitely helped my son whilst being enjoyable and fun.
The children are very keen to come each day. It is well organised with the right amount of typing and activities. The teachers are lovely and I don’t know how you manage to keep all the students under control! Very good value.
My son feels more confident with the keyboard and he has enjoyed the course from day one.
This is the second time we have done the course and there is no need to change it. It is worth the fees.
My son will be using his typing skills during future school lessons so this course was vital. He was very happy and enjoyed it and the feedback was very helpful. It was a 45 minute drive for us but worth it.
It has taught me how to type correctly and I have learned a new skill (-
It has helped me remember some tips for locating the keys. It’s been fun! The children in my team were delightful.
I liked the fact that kids and adults could come and learn together.
