Achieve huge increases in productivity and efficiency for your business.

These days, many employees use a computer for a large part of their day, for emails, letters, research, data entry etc.  Yet so few employees can type efficiently (UK surveys suggest less than 20%).

Frankly, this means that many of your employees are probably wasting hundreds, even thousands of hours (and £s!) per year.

Yet if they spent just a few hours over a few weeks learning to type properly, they would gain more time and significantly increase their productivity.   In turn, this would save or gain your organisation many thousands of pounds.  Furthermore, the accuracy and quality of  your organisation’s business communications would improve.  Our ‘Type Faster, Work Smarter’ programme, is a CPD accredited course for business, worth 40 CPD points for each individual who completes it.

Through around 15-30 minutes’ practice per day, at their desktop or at home, participants will learn to touch type, resulting in them increasing their typing speed, improving their accuracy – and adjusting their posture at the keyboard, which in turn reduces the risk of injuries.

The programme will start with a 5-minute assessment of each participants’ current keyboard skills which they will complete at their desktop, followed by a course induction, conducted online, when they will discuss their aims and objectives and agree their training plan.  During their training, our tutor will monitor their progress remotely and offer encouragement.

Once they have made sufficient progress with touch-typing techniques, our tutor will encourage a participant to ‘ditch and switch’ – that is to ‘ditch’ their old slow typing method and ‘switch’ to touch-typing techniques at all times, not just when using the course.

Following a bit more speed and accuracy practice, the programme will eventually finish with another desk-based assessment, to compare before and after results.  Following that, we will produce a report for your organisation which provides a clear illustration of your return on investment.  Your organisation will recover the modest investment in the course through productivity increases within just a few weeks, if not days.  And because the course is CPD Certified, each learner who completes will receive a CPD Certificate.

Finally, there is the option to gain a nationally accredited ‘Open Awards’ touch-typing qualification at Level 1 or 2 for an additional fee.
