From the parents:

Very well organised, clear instructions, enthusiastic team, good venue, it’s working!
I liked the facilities, size of class and the teachers. It has built her confidence and ability to touch type.
Good value given the level of teaching and staff/pupil ratio.
I like that it is a short course in the school holidays.
It has increased my child’s confidence. He has learnt the keyboard and is starting to know the keys without looking. I liked that the course is very flexible with a clear structure and varied activities. The teachers are calm, approachable and knowledgeable. The cost is reasonable.
From being a total beginner a year ago my son can now touch type. He was very reluctant to begin with but we have persevered. As he struggles with handwriting, this will be an enormous help to him, particularly at school. The teachers are wonderfully patient and helpful. The success of the course is all down to the excellent teachers. I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has helped him learn this valuable skill of touch typing.
I like that it is fun at the same time as learning.
A great confidence boost and motivator for both of my children who attended. I liked the fact that I could do it with my children. The cost was very good and the teachers patient and encouraging.
Excellent. Love it.
I was surprised how much the kids enjoyed it! Will highly recommend!
I liked the focussed time on typing away from my busy life. I liked doing it with my children, helping us all to better skills. The teachers are all very kind, helpful and encouraging. I would like the course to have been longer.
I became faster and more accurate.

It has helped to teach me how to touch type without looking. I liked that there were boards to stop us from looking at the keyboard and Velcro to help guide where you were on the home keys and shifts. I liked the creative activities and the teachers were encouraging, friendly, polite and their advice was very useful. Very patient. Good that it is in a school setting because it helps me to concentrate and want to learn. Girl 17
