Even the TUC are saying it!

Yes I know I have been @ NAACE since Tuesday and there is lots to say about the whole event, but I must just record this link.

The TUC website reports, that they are calling on the government to help stop the epidemic of workplace repetitive strain injury (RSI) by introducing typing and keyboard skills into schools.

You can download a full copy of the report by clicking here.

Highlights include:

"TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said: “Keyboard skills are not a statutory part of the National Curriculum, although individual schools can decide to introduce them. This means that
millions of children are missing out on a life skill that could help protect the workforce of
tomorrow from this painful and chronic illness. The government should introduce touch
typing and keyboard skills into the National Curriculum as soon as possible."
