The ONLINE Typing 4 DofE course is for attendees either looking to take their first steps in learning how to touch-type, or looking to improve on their existing typing skills. Using a gamified approach to learning to type, the challenges start out simple and progressively become more advanced. Using games, levels, badges, stars and leader boards, attendees learn to type interactively, building up their muscle memory and increasing accuracy and word-speed. Note that unlike courses from other providers, these weekly sessions are led by a LIVE!, remote tutor who is able to provide attendees guidance in real-time, along with progress reviews during the sessions.

At the end of the course, you will receive a Spark4Kids certificate and a Skills Assessor report will be submitted to the Duke of Edinburgh towards your eventual skills award.
