In 1995, with backing from private equity firm 3i, the same course team of experts responsible for producing over 55 RSA/NVQ level computer and office skills courses were commissioned to produce a typing software that would teach typing skills easily, efficiently and effectively.
After considerable experimentation, thought and at the leading edge of educational technology, KAZ Typing Tutor, incorporating a unique and trademarked accelerated learning teaching method, was scientifically developed. It was trialled, tested and used by 18,000 students per year, for 3 years, in 300 private training centres across the United Kingdom and only when exceptional results were achieved (93% of students learning to type the a - z keys in just 90 minutes), was it launched to market.
With the rapid advancement in technology and to cater for the modern workplace, in 2015, the program was re-written in to HTML and completely updated with new graphics, interfaces and animation.
Due to continual requests from special educational needs teachers (SENCOs) and assessors and to cater for neurodivergent individuals, we decided to produce a specialised edition. We contacted Dr. Sue Fowler and her team at the Dyslexia Research Trust (Reading Clinic and Oxford University) and with their advice and guidance, produced and launched our SEN/Dyslexia edition.
In order to gain external validation from a trusted global brand, providing a mark of learning quality and credibility, we liaised with City & Guilds. Our course is now City & Guilds ‘ Assured ’ - a status only awarded to programmes that meet City & Guild’ s strict benchmark standards, demonstrating commitment to quality training.
