Offering a helping hand to students
As the region’s employers prepare for another year’s students to leave education and enter the job market, the UK’s leading independent training provider, Pitman Training, is opening its doors with open arms to help prepare school leavers for entering employment with the best possible prospects.
With a recent ACAS survey revealing that 46,413 fewer English students applied for university this year compared to last year, there is to be a bigger influx than ever of school-leavers seeking employment and Pitman Training’s network of centres are keen to set them off on the right path.
Offering free career clinic sessions and a free typing test, along with a 121 CV review and free demonstrations on a number of courses, Pitman Training is offering students support via their network of in-centre trained advisors, to help guide them to possible job opportunities. Our centres are also keen to get the message across the there are many different ways of learning and for those interested in acquiring further skills online courses could be a great way of them learning whilst they earn.
With hundreds of success stories such as Stacie Pettman, from Pitman Training Dover, who was last year crowned as ‘Student of the Year’ after transforming her career from waitress to legal secretary in just a few months, Pitman Training are keen to show anything is possible.
Students interested in attending the free career clinics, and taking the free typing test can do this by contacting their local centre [www.pitman-training.com/locations] – they also have the chance to win free training by taking part in Pitman’s ‘Fastest Fingers First’ initiative, where they pitch their typing skills against Olympian Colin Jackson.
Claire Lister, Managing Director of Pitman Training Group commented “Our centres are really keen to work with local students to help them prepare themselves in the best possible way for finding the career they want. We really enjoy hearing about people’s aspirations and working with them to help them achieve these.”
