Realise your child potential by getting them to learn how to touch type.

Do you want your child to learn how to touch type in a classroom environment with a qualified
instructor?  Does your child need to learn how to touch-type?

Searsol has been offering touch typing courses since 2008 to children who need to learn how to touch type. We provide a positive learning environment where your child learns at their own pace.

We have a very high success rate for children to learn how to touch type.

Searsol after school typing courses offers a child the following benefits:

  • We use our own typing tutor (Typewiz) which was developed to provide extra motivation for a child to learn how to touch type.
  • Qualified instructors with years of experience teaching children how to touch type.
  • Qualified instructors that are Garda vetted.
  • Students work at their own pace but in a group environment so encouraging the child to learn.
  • We provide a positive learning environment so your child can reach their full potential.
  • A report is available at the end of each class to show how a student performed in class.
  • Praise and positivity are delivered throughout the course.
  • Course certification is presented at the end of each term

Why not bring your child along for the initial free trial assessment first session to any of our centres?

When you bring your child for a free trial. We will provide an initial assessment of what your child can achieve on the course. We have three standards on the course:

  • Bronze – 15 words per minute
  • Silver –  25 words per minute – this standard would be suitable for children who are going to doing the state exams using a laptop.
  • Gold – 40 words per minute – this is where you can type faster than you can write.

The trial lasts a full hour and your child will be in a classroom with other students along with our Searsol Tutor.
