The Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Skills is a 12 week remote Flexi Time course, which means that you complete the online lessons when it is convenient for you. The course requires approximately 1 hour of touch typing practise per week. The 'little and often' approach is best when learning to touch type; 10 minutes practise per day is better than a 1 hour stint per week.

Your tutor will review your keystrokes and send you weekly emails with feedback on your touch typing from the previous week together with tips to improve and your personalised lesson plan for the next week.  

The course has been carefully designed to establish muscle memory through repetition and games before the next pair of keys are introduced.

typeify will submit the assessor's report directly to DofE on your behalf at the end of the course. 

The welcome pack is sent to the student before they start the course, it consists of:

  • Full size USB keyboard with coloured coded dots to hide the keys

  • Activity workbook

  • Reward stickers

The congratulations pack is sent to the student after course completion:

  • Certificate

  • Prize
