Touch-Typing 4 Kids

Typing 4 Kids (ages 8-14)

from £112Per Child

Course Information

Typing 4 Kids is a workshop for children either looking to take their first steps in learning how to touch-type, or looking to improve on their existing typing skills.

Attendees aged of all abilities are welcome, from beginners (who have never touch-typed) all the way through to more experienced touch-typists. Those who have attended this workshop in the past can attend again if they enjoyed it the last time: the typing challenges are tailored to build upon topics covered in previous sessions (please indicate previous attendance in booking notes).

This is an all-inclusive online workshop, with Spark4Kids providing all the course material and tuition – the attendee just needs to login when the online session starts, for a fun-filled, touch-typing workshop.

Activities

Using a gamified approach to learning, the touch typing challenges start out simple and progressively become more advanced. Using games, levels, badges, stars and leader boards, children learn to type interactively, building up their muscle memory and word-speed while increasing accuracy. These are LIVE! tutor-led, interactive sessions with tutors monitoring typing progress in a remote classroom setting.

Attending a Course Multiple Times

You can re-book the same Spark4Kids course multiple times if your child has previously attended the course and enjoyed working on the coding challenges. We are constantly updating our courses and there are always new coding challenges to tackle. We are also able to further tailor the coding challenges for a specific course to suit your child if he/she has a clear idea of what they would like to work on (kindly email us about this prior to the course starting).

 

Further Information

We offer sibling discounts, payment by instalments and payment using childcare vouchers on all our courses.

 

Paying by Instalments

Spark4Kids accepts payment by instalments on some of our courses, provided the booking is completed early (the option is not available if booking within a month of the course start date).

For term-time bookings, children looking to have double sessions during term-time are also offered a 10% discount off the second hour of the session. For workshop bookings, children who are booked on a second workshop also attract a 10% discount on the second workshop.

Discounts are automatically applied during the booking process if all courses are included in the same shopping basket and paid for at the same time. They do not apply if sessions for siblings or other multiple sessions are booked and paid for in separate transactions.
