Instead of traditional classrooms, our training centre resembles a modern office. In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking our students were busy office workers!

But the truth is, they’re all learning practical skills to get them into office work, using the most flexible, time-friendly method imaginable. The students get to choose their own training schedule – daytimes, evenings or Saturdays, or even a mixture of these.

With over 160 years of training history, this high quality English name has opened on Chorlton Street, delivering flexible study towards nationally recognised qualifications in PA & secretarial skills, admin, bookkeeping and IT.

In fact, Pitman is the place to train for anything to do with office work!

How good can it get?

Well, wait till you see the quality of our training materials and the way the courses are delivered. It’s truly something different!

Not only that, but most of our famous diploma programmes have an element of tailorability to them, enabling students to match their interests and intrinsic abilities to the needs of the jobs market.

That’s probably why our students have such a high exam pass rate, with the majority scooping distinctions!

Our goal is “changing lives, building futures” and we try hard to apply that vision to everything we do for our students, with the focus on giving them the skills to get into high-status, well-paid careers.
