Explicit knowledge helps us ‘know what’ whilst tacit knowledge is ‘know how’. Tacit knowledge is not learnt by reading books; it is acquired by addressing real problems & practice. This is why our Pitman courses are based on practical learning ensuring our students acquire practical skills. We will help you gain the tools and skills that are sought-after by employers in today’s job market.

Our friendly course advisors have a wealth of experience and will take the time to get to know you. Whether you are employed or unemployed, experienced or just a complete novice we can advise and tailor a training programme specifically for you. We also offer free taster sessions so you can experience for yourself, before deciding to buy, the exceptional quality of our Pitman Courses. The adaptable delivery style of our diplomas and courses, either at our Centre, online or a combination of both, means that your training can fit around your work or home so that you can find the time for learning within your own lifestyle.

Let us help you open doors and achieve your goals in Hertfordshire’s ‘County of Opportunity’.

Our Watford Training Centre
The owner manager of Pitman Watford was a Finance Director of a group of small to medium companies. This wealth of expertise enables her to successfully support our students at Pitman Watford through their level 2 and level 3 AAT diplomas with distinction passes.

Our tutors have a wealth of experience. One has a law degree and is successfully supporting our students in centre in gaining their legal qualification whilst another is able to support those students that have no experience using a computer to those wishing to get their MOS qualification/level 3 ITQ. She has also herself successfully completed a Pitman's diploma. Our final tutor has a wide range of experience of a large number of Pitman's courses and has started to specialise in the medical subjects.

All our tutors either have or are working towards their PTLLs (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector) to ensure the quality of tutor support is excellent. Now added to the team is a level 6 qualified Careers Adviser to give free professional careers advice to those learners requiring this support. We are also now able to offer employability support through a two day course covering CV writing, cover letters and interview techniques. The course has been written and delivered by a corporate HR Director.

This wealth of knowledge within the Pitman Watford team together with their exceptional support and guidance ensures all our students achieve their learning aims enabling them to stand out from the crowd and obtain that all-important job.
