In just 25 hours speeds of 20-40+ words per minute are perfectly achievable, even if you have little prior experience. Comprising 10 lessons, you’ll also receive guidance on ergonomics, technique and accuracy.
Slap bang in the middle of the City’s (and the nation’s) legal quarter, this is the place where ambitious people can start a course at any time and study at times to suit them during the centre’s long opening hours, which include daytimes, evenings and Saturdays.
Using self-paced training with on-site training support at its core, the centre is able to offer training in much the same style as gym membership. That is to say, you pay your fee and attend when it suits you.
The result is that students can decide how quickly or how slowly they complete their training programmes.
Many get through their studies as quickly as they can while others linger longer, enjoying being in a part of the city which, although only a short walk from Covent Garden, is rarely visited by tourists. We like to keep it a bit of a secret!
Students constantly tell us how they enjoy lunch in the secret cloister café in Temple, walk past the British Museum, swing by Dickens’ “Olde Curiosity Shoppe” and slip through the beautiful Lincolns Inn Fields on their way to see us.

We’re different from traditional colleges – there are no term dates or timetables! We pride ourselves on providing convenient and flexible ways for you to fulfil your training needs!

Having decided to “better themselves,” most people choose to train with us because our qualifications frequently lead to well-paid high status careers in the world’s most exciting city.

We’re a Microsoft IT Academy, and are recognised by CILEX, AAT, BCS and OCR.
