Typing's Cool was set up in 2010 and currently runs before school, lunchtime and after school clubs in independent schools in Kingston upon Thames, Richmond, Wandsworth and Wimbledon.
Typing's Cool teaches children, young people and adults how to touch type, using a number of software programmes especially written for children and young people. We have developed a unique approach to learning formal touch typing technique drawing on developing cognitive research to learn as fast and effectively as possible. During the sessions we also play team games such as Keyboard Bingo and the chocolate typing challenge to reinforce skills while creating a fun, inclusive club atmosphere.
In the Spring of 2014 Typing's Cool launched its adult training programme in a SW London hospital for staff to learn to touch type in just eight hours. We are currently offering our two day (eight hours) course to companies, organisations and school staff INSET commissioners.
