I’m looking to become a legal secretary would this be the right type of touch typing course?
To become a Legal Secretary, you will need touch typing skills. So this course is ideal for gaining these skills. It has trained many legal secretaries. However, I recommend you also consider taking Souters CPD accredited Legal Secretary Course. This can be taken online or in classroom sessions in London. You need these skills to understand how a legal office works and how best to produce legal forms, letters and documents. Any doubts contact us and speak to course consultant.This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
What type of keyboard is needed for the typing course? Can I use my laptop keyboard or do I need to buy a keyboard with raised keys?
It is better to buy a standard UK QWERTY keyboard as used normally with a PC; you can source these online quite reasonablyThis was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
My son is also looking at doing this for his DofE award. Could you tell me how many hours /week this will take if done over a 3 month period please?
Dear Cath Thank you for contacting Souters regarding this course. Typing is a physical skill that requires practice, practice, and more practice. It is a skill that can be learnt on a self-taught basis, and so your son can dictate his pace of learning. Nevertheless, we recommend training of at least one hour on a daily basis over a 3 month period if study is taken on a remote basis. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

I am interested in doing this course for the DofE award, is it possible that the tutor could be the assessor and write a short report at the end.
The course is an online interactive training system where you have the opportunity to complete monitored tests, there is no live tutor; we can confirm course status to the DofE scheme at the end of the course, but we will need your information as to the link on the website and your enrollment number.This was helpful.
