It gave me confidence to touch type and I love that you accept adults too. The teachers were very helpful and professional.
It has forced me to sit in front of the computer and practise! This is difficult to do at home without interruptions. I liked the encouragement I received from the tutors – it feels strange to learn as an adult and the teachers have been wonderful. The activities were great! Really useful to ‘relax’. It has been a really pleasant and educational experience.
Relaxed, calm pace. Variety of tasks, computer and group work. The activities were a great way of presenting content to suit different learning styles. The teachers were very good, clear communication, professional, patient, excellent. Keep up the good work!
The course was very comprehensive and thorough and the teachers great, very helpful and friendly.
I previously typed with just two fingers! I liked the dynamic of mixed ages and experiences.
The children were kept interested, the teachers were fun, friendly and motivating. It was very organised and prompt with the cost being reasonable. Mother
