What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend

Much like riding a bike or swimming, touch typing is a skill that will serve you a lifetime, and once you have mastered it, you will never look back! Touch typing simply refers to typing without looking at the keyboard, using muscle memory instead of sight, and is a skill that is essential for everyone because of the universal use of computers in education and the workplace.

Effective keyboard skills and touch-typing are essential elements of computer literacy, and greatly benefit you in your career and even your personal life. Even if you are someone who has to type with two fingers, or look down at the keyboard after every letter, you can still learn quickly and easily with the right training.

Activia's touch typing courses are designed to help you learn, practice and improve your typing speed, which will revolutionise the way you work and ensure you're a highly productive member of any team.

How Can I Benefit From Touch Typing Training?

No matter what job you are applying for, touch typing is something that is often expected by employers - but even if you don't have a job that requires you to type, it is still a valuable life skill to have.

By learning touch typing, you could drastically cut down the amount of time it takes you to do even the simplest tasks. Research shows that touch typing can save you over 700 hours a year (about a month), as opposed to using two fingers to type. It makes sense that, by increasing the speed at which you work, you will also improve your overall productivity levels. Being able to quickly write documents, reports and emails, means that the tasks on your to-do list will quickly be ticked off and you will achieve more with your day.

Another benefit of touch typing is your improved ability to concentrate. Each time you have to look at the keyboard to find the right key or go back and correct a mistake, it is a type of distraction, and subsequently your focus is broken. Touch typing allows you to direct your focus on the screen, and the task at hand, instead of the keyboard.

Further Benefits

But touch typing isn't just about increasing your typing speed and reducing errors - it's also about adopting healthy computer habits in order to reduce the risk of injury, and provide increased comfort when sitting at a desk for long periods of time. By typing in a more efficient manner, your posture will automatically improve, preventing you from developing achy shoulders, a stiff neck or sore wrists. After reading about all these benefits, why would you not want to improve your keyboard and touch typing skills?
