Touch Typing

Children and teens learn how to use a keyboard properly so that they become used to correct touch typing early on. We also emphasize correct posture and finger position. Children regularly practice at home.

Typing practice challenges children’s perception as well. When we type, words "break down" into individual letters. Typing words one letter at a time encourages careful proofreading, which improves spelling.

Accredited Diploma

 

Being able to touch type without looking at the keys has become part of general education.

Some schools integrate touch typing in their curriculum, and correct typing used to be one of the first things KV apprentices learned at vocational school.

Today, vocational schools require students to obtain their typing certificate before beginning their apprenticeship so that they can take on simple office tasks right away.

Our method and the typing diploma are recognized by the cantonal vocational schools.

The assessment takes place according to the guidelines of the IKA Professional Association of Vocational Business Schools.
