Job Description:

You will be trained to lead and manage a TypeRight Course. Your learners are tutored in small groups, but with individual oversight. They follow the basic structure of an on-screen software programme developed by Educational Psychologists, that leads them, in a clear and engaging manner, through the basic steps necessary to use the keyboard correctly. On reaching a pre-determined level of basic competence they are introduced to specialist resources developed by TypeRight to enhance their sense of achievement and cement their understanding of the relevance of their new-found skill to their wider educational syllabus. These exercises fine-tune their developing skills and help them learn the importance of being able to both copy-type and take dictation.

Additionally, and of great importance to our proposition, the software also gives us a detailed analysis of each learner’s progress on an ongoing basis. This data is closely monitored analysed and shared with both parents and schoolteachers to ensure that a suitable level of both ambition and engagement is being invested by all involved. This is the fundamental basis of our approach which is now widely recognised as The TypeRight® Method.


School Endorsements

“Amanda Gush has run a touch typing club at Falcons Preparatory School for Boys for two years. Her club is always full and she has now had to open an early morning one as well. The boys appreciate her calmness and her expert knowledge. She knows exactly where each of the boys are in their touch typing and what they need to do to improve. Many of her students are now using their laptops for longer pieces of written work. In addition, she has many good ideas for how to help the boys use a laptop in the classroom. We now have half a dozen dyslexic boys in Year 6 all able to use a laptop in class because of Amanda’s teaching. As a result they have gained in confidence and they are able to produce work that reflects their ability. She has made a huge difference to many boys in our school.”
