DofE Flexi Course - Home Learning fully supported by Qualified Teachers

Our popular Flexi DofE course enables you to learn to Touch Type at a time that suits from anywhere – in your own home, boarding school, college/uni or even overseas.  With support on hand when you need it from teachers with over 20 years’ experience.  No Zoom sessions involved.

The Flexi 3 Steps:

  1. You will be set weekly tasks to complete and asked to submit your Progress Report with a short video clip.
  2. Your teacher will check your progress and typing technique.
  3. You will then receive individual feedback and the following week’s typing tasks.

This course is ideal for our DofE students who would like a more flexible course.  As it is a Duke of Edinburgh course, pupils must commit to completing the tasks given for at least an hour each week, over a 12 week period.  It is a perfect course for our overseas students too
