Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Andy. I feel exactly the same about learning and supporting others on their own learning pathways.

A colleague and I both use accelerated learning techniques in training people to use keyboards - we can teach people to touch type in four hours!
It does sound far fetched, however I can promise you that it is true. The course incorporates the use of imagery, relaxation and activities to enhance recall. By the end of the four hours people really do know their way round the keyboard, even though they will probably only have practised actually typing for a quarter of that time. If people practise using the exercises that they take away with them, within two weeks they should be up to speeds of around 30 words per minute.
