What better way to incentivise your pupils to learn to type properly than to offer them an accredited qualification at the end of their learning? Not only will it reward them for their achievement, it will also provide them with the proof of their skills in future when they enter the world of work.
The Open Awards qualifications are at two different levels – Level 1 and Level 2. The pass marks are as follows:-
Level 1 – 20 words per minute at 95% accuracy.
Level 2 – 40 words per minute at 98% accuracy.
Schools which already use our Typequick courseware and Skill Evaluator automated assessment tool will have all they need to deliver the training and the tests. In order to invigilate the tests, they will need to register with Open Awards to gain approved Test Centre status. Or you could commission us to come on site and invigilate the tests for you.
There will be a registration fee for each candidate, which includes the certification, of £28 for the Level 1 or £31 for the Level 2. If a funding stream isn’t available, consider giving parents, who may be willing to pay for their child, the option.
