Over the last few weeks the global spotlight has been upon Russia. The worlds largest nation has drawn wide acclaim for its professional hosting of a remarkable 21st FIFA World Cup event.


The proudly patriotic Russian people have grasped the opportunity to showcase their country at its best – removing preconceptions and exceeding expectations both on and off the pitch. The Pitman Training team have had more reason than normal to feel proud and have been watching all aspects avidly from their headquarters in the UK, since their launch into the Russian market nearly 2 years ago.

With over 100 training centres around the world and having recently celebrated their 180th anniversary, the Pitman model enables franchise partners to take the brand, product and unique learning platform – the Pitman Campus to their own local markets.

This provides quality vocational training in a flexible supported environment, promoting accessibility for all, as students across the world, even in remote locations, have the opportunity to study with Pitman and realise life changing career aspirations.

Nicola Hoskin, International Business Development Manager for Pitman Training Group comments, “We are honoured to have partnered with an experienced and skilled Franchisee in Moscow and have been hugely impressed by the passion, innovation and ambition that the team have shown for the development of the Pitman brand.

“A number of our UK team have had the opportunity to travel to Moscow to support the launch of the business – a tremendous experience for them and of course we are in regular contact and provide ongoing support, recently opening the 6th Pitman Training Centre in Moscow alone.  There are plans to launch in St Petersburg and other key cities in the near future.  Pitman’s flagship English language programme – Pitman English has achieved great success thus far although Online Bookkeeping Courses & Qualifications, Accounting and Marketing subjects are also in high demand.”

At the heart of everything that Pitman Training stands for is quality and their partners worldwide share this ethos to deliver a quality brand proposition.

Nicola Hoskin concludes“We look forward to continued success with Pitman Training Russia and continued success for the English team in the World Cup!”
