Our Lady's Catholic High School, Fulwood, invited Forbes Solicitors into school to be part of their Year 7 ICT (Information, Communication and Technology) day. Forbes has developed an in house touch typing programme for its staff and adapted the programme for Our Lady's Catholic High School. Two members of the Forbes' in-house Training team (Joanne Pickering and Sam Jones) lead touch typing classes for 90 pupils.
Joanne Pickering, Head of HR and Training commented, "being able to touch type is a vital work related skill which helps protect a computer user from repetitive strain injuries and enables the individual to work more effectively. This skill can be used by the pupil for their homework and coursework and can be taken into the world of work."
