Improving employees’ typing skills saves £5k per head per year.

Productivity Programme High Performance largeThe majority of people in the UK now use a computer at work for emails, letters, reports, research and so on.  Yet around 80% cannot type efficiently and, as a consequence, are wasting huge amounts of time.  And as time is money, that can add up to an awful lot of pounds, shillings and pence over the course of a year.

In fact, we estimate that, on average, someone who can touch type – that is, to type with all their fingers whilst keeping their eyes firmly on the computer screen – will be £5,000 a year more productive than someone who can’t.  Do your own calculations for your company by completing our online productivity calculator – click here.

And touch typists are more accurate typists.  Their business communications will project a more positive and professional image, as it won’t be littered with spelling and grammatical mistakes.

Isn’t it time you tackled this hugely negative effect on output and quality?

The first step in doing so is to assess your employees’ existing typing skills.  We’ll do this for you.  Our unique ‘Skill Evaluator’ online typing assessment tool (which happens to be the only online tool used for UK typing qualifications), is the simple and fast way to assess skills, without your staff needing to leave their desk.

We’ll set it up for you remotely so your people can complete it at their desktop when they have a spare 5 minutes, which is all it takes.  Results are calculated immediately and reported back for you to analyse later through our online learning management system.  We’ll set up all the assessments for you remotely, put an end date on them and chase up any individuals who are slow to get round to it.  And we’ll carry out a calculation to show the amount of money your organisation can expect to save as a result of improving the skills of those who are revealed to need some training.

The price of all of this is just £10 plus VAT per head with a minimum order of 10.  We will be happy to discuss discounts for volume.

Effortless income generation for your school!

five-pound-notesThrough our innovative ‘Practise at Home’ scheme, your school can earn useful extra income whilst your pupils learn to type! 

 

“It’s a great scheme, and what a bonus to get some cash back!”  John Carver, ICT Teacher, Cothill House School.

 

It is widely accepted that, in an age when the computer keyboard is mightier than the pen, learning to type properly is important for both pupils and their school. But the realities and demands of the National Curriculum mean that many schools don’t have the budget or the lesson time to devote to typing training.

The benefits of learning to touch type for pupils and for the school are enormous. Pupils will work faster, with greater accuracy and will gain confidence.  Teachers will always be able to read pupils’ work, and spelling is improved.  And with the likelihood of computer-based exams on the horizon, good typing skills will give your pupils a real advantage.

Through our simple ‘Practise at Home’ scheme, schools which don’t have a budget for typing training now have the chance to have access to high quality touch-typing courseware whilst earning valuable extra income to spend as they wish.

There is no upfront cost and no work involved other than to send an email to parents inviting them to purchase Typequick directly through our web site at a discounted price.  It’s a win-win-win situation:-

  • Parents can order the highest quality, nationally acclaimed courseware for their child at a discounted price of £18 including VAT – 25% off the normal consumer retail price.
  • Children get to learn to touch-type, gaining a skill that will last them a lifetime and having fun along the way through using our engaging online courseware.
  • Your school will earn £££s of extra money simply through supporting the scheme.

So don’t be tempted by poor quality free online typing courses.  You can do better than that!  Our high quality course will not only cost your school nothing – it will earn valuable income.

Surely this is an absolute ‘no-brainer’, as they say?!  You can find out all the details of how the scheme works by clicking here.
