Key Training

In the mid-to-late 1960's the advent of computers created a step change in the way organisations processed data. Workers had to rapidly learn new skills; however, many of them were repetitive and error-prone. In fact, the advantages that computerisation offered were often limited by the speed and accuracy of the operator/user.

It was in response to this new way of working that Key was established in 1965, offering training that not only improved the speed and accuracy of data processing but also addressed practices and procedures to improve health, well-being and safety in the workplace.

In the 1980's, Key was invited by the Government to set up training centres around the country to re-skill adults and school leavers, who could then work more efficiently in an ever changing office environment.
