Speed Writing

West Yorkshire & Harrogate Excellence Centre
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

Unlike shorthand that takes time to learn and to adopt, the speed writing approach can be learned in a short period of time, and with practice, your speed proficiency can increase in just a few weeks.

The session includes a large number of dictation exercises to enable the practice of speed writing to become a habit.
