Why University isn’t Always the Answer


For any young person or student; trying to choose a career path and any subsequent route in further education can be a confusing and stressful time. There is often a perception that opting not to attend university will hamper your career ambitions, but this is most definitely not an opinion we at Pitman Training agree with.

We’ve been pleased to note the increasing spotlight placed on the importance of vocational education for young people both whilst in school, and beyond. University obviously has huge benefits and can lead to an excellent career, but the same can be said for vocational education and crucially, the cost of vocational education can be a fraction of the price of university tuition fees.

Across our network of training centres we’re seeing an increasing number of students coming to our centres looking for a way to get practical skills they can apply quickly and directly in the workplace. We’ve helped thousands of students train in professions such as Accountancy, IT, Secretarial and PA, Web Design and more.

Obviously here at Pitman Training, we are biased towards vocational education, but we feel this is with very good reason. Rather than learning just the theory of something, vocational education means you’re gaining actual hands-on, practical skills.

In our centres we quite often meet students searching for employment who manage to acquire a position whilst still studying. Employers recognise the benefit and skill-level of people training with us and know that the students they take on will be able to undertake the work required without too much on-the-job training.
