Electronic Notetaking to Support Deaf and Disable People - Accredited by OCN London

Do you have a typing speed around 50wpm, a good command of English, I.T. skills, and confidence? Why not train to become an Electronic Notetaker? Electronic Notetakers support equal access to learning, employment and services, providing reliable notes for a wide range of clients.

The former Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, now Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, recently published guidance requiring notetakers providing support to people with disabilities have formal notetaking qualifications.

Trained note takers are in short supply and the new guidance will certainly increase demand for trained notetakers.

Qualified notetakers can earn over £30/hour.

Our training equips you with the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to get started in a challenging and rewarding role. Learning with our experienced tutors in a friendly, supportive environment, you will be working towards a recognised professional qualification.
