Students aged 9+

Tutor led courses at school, in the holidays, remote Flexi Time courses and DofE courses

At typeify, we teach students to type quickly and accurately without looking at the keyboard.

In school, children are not taught how to type. It's not in the national curriculum. We teach children this lifelong skill through a fun and interactive course.

"My friends can't believe how fast I

type now! They all want to do the

course too." - Zachary, student

Q. Why learn to touch type?

  • increase productivity, finish work more quickly

  • focus on creative writing - not on the typing

  • improve speed and accuracy; e.g exams, coding or Ai

  • help children keep up with their classmates

  • reduce the risk of RSI with correct positioning

  • lifelong skill for school, university and beyond

  • less typos which means better spelling

  • we aim to reach 15-45 words per minute. Some students have achieved as high as 60+wpm

Student course levels:

A Bronze Award

Bronze - suitable for beginners. In this course, students learn all 26 letters on the keyboard, 4 punctuation marks (full stop,  comma, semi colon and backslash) and many commonly typed words.

A Silver Award

Silver - suitable for students who can already touch type all 26 letters on the keyboard. This course focuses on learning to touch type all punctuation marks and numbers, improving speed and accuracy, and some dictation.

A Gold Award

Gold - suitable for students who can already touch type all letters and punctation marks. This course is designed to enhance speed and accuracy, with advanced note taking (typing the key points, rather than just typing verbatim). This extra taught skill is not only useful in writing projects, listening to teachers, in seminars and lectures, but vital in many professions.
