Flexi Course Details

Independent Weekly Sign In with Qualified Teacher Supervision

Our popular Flexi DofE course enables you to learn to touch type at a time that suits from anywhere!  Both our Flexi and our Online courses count as an Approved Skill for the Bronze & Silver DofE.

How will this work?

Once you have registered for the course you will be given the programme and sent a colour coded keyboard in the post.  We will email you a Students Pack to download.

The course will run for a 12 week period.  Each week you will be set tasks to complete and once you have done these, we ask that you submit your Progress Report.

We will then set you the following week’s lessons.
You will need to send your report through by the Monday of each week so that we can register it and set your work for the following week.

We will also ask for weekly short video clips just to check your typing technique.

Who is this course for?

This course is ideal for our students who would like a more flexible course.  As it is a DofE 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.

How will we get support?

Philippa and Clare will be available each week to help with touch typing technique and to go through the different stages of the programme.  They will monitor the Progress Report and videos weekly and give individual feedback for each student. At the end of the course they will complete and upload your Assessor’s Report Online.
