Computers and keyboards are an ever-present part of life these days, no matter what profession we choose. Expectations for our children to produce presentations, projects, coursework and assessments has also increased. It’s not just our secondary children who are expected to touch type but our primary ones too! By giving your child the essential skill of touch typing, you are effectively giving them a head start in life and extra confidence as a result. So whether they go on to become a doctor or dancer, surveyor or solicitor, they’ll be able to type quickly and accurately, without taking ages or hunting for the next letter on the keyboard!
