After working as a service team leader for Woolworths Alison decided to join Pitman Training. Now, after being with the company for seven years she is the Senior Branch Manager for the Kent franchise. If you would like to know anything about the courses and diplomas we provide, Alison would be more than willing to give you an answer - there’s not much that Alison doesn’t know.
Kirsty has been with Pitman Training since July 2011 as the Senior Training Supervisor for the Croydon centre. Before this she worked as a Customer Service Supervisor at a Betting company.
Kirsty wouldn’t say she has a specialist Pitman subject but she is learning and building up her knowledge base on a daily basis.
Sarah has been employed with Pitman since July last year – initially starting out as work experience, but because she was fantastic with the students and staff, Sarah was taken on as a full-time Training Supervisor. Sarah learnt all of her customer service skills as an assistant hairdresser: meeting and greeting clients, building a rapport with clients and reception work. If you have any questions about our Book-keeping, payroll and Microsoft Word courses, Sarah is the person to ask.

News and Events
Student of the Month
We would like to congratulate Jo Burton, our Student of the Month! She has been training towards the Executive PA Diploma at Pitman for just over a month now and has shown extreme dedication. Jo is usually the first student to arrive in the centre every morning and we practically have to push her out to leave in the evening! In her spare time she is the vocalist of a cover band and enjoys decorating. You wouldn’t believe it, but she used to be a Bluecoat at Pontins! Jo celebrated her 40th birthday during August by taking a break to Rome. Keep up the good work Jo!
