The Pitman Training name is one of the oldest and best known in office-based training, and our qualifications are recognised by recruitment consultants and employers as a mark of practical excellence.

You can choose to study in-centre or online at whichever time suits you best. Our centre is a calm and spacious place to study despite being located in the centre of Croydon.

You’ll study in an environment set up just like an office, working on a PC with an audio guide and our training team on hand when you need them. You can continue your studies outside the centre using the new online Pitman Campus platform which gives you all you need to study wherever you are located.

Our courses develop in-depth skills and can help you move from novice right up to expert through a carefully planned sequence of practical learning opportunities. Don’t panic if you haven’t studied for a while as our experienced trainers will be with you every step of the way, coaching you, answering your questions and solving your problems, so even if you have no office skills experience, you’ll get there.

You can choose to study single subjects or even higher career value diploma packages to make you really attractive to employers.

Training With Us

Croydon has a vibrant and growing business district with many well-known companies and Government departments. Croydon is set to become London’s biggest growth centre with more than £5.25bn worth of investment in the next five years. Our courses prepare people for careers with both local employers and those in the City. We are also located close to recruitment consultants who highly value the reputation of Pitman training when reviewing candidates’ CVs for positions.

We support people looking to return to the workplace into rewarding and well-paid jobs. We can support you not only with training, but also with advice on CVs and job applications. Croydon also has a burgeoning tech sector and our courses give the skills required for those looking to develop in this area.

Imagine having no prior office skills (or maybe skills that have become a bit rusty!) and being good enough to aim for a new career in 3, 6 or 9 months!

Because our programmes are so flexible, you can study as quickly or as slowly as you wish, on your way to a nationally recognised qualification.

So, the more time you put in, the quicker you’ll finish your course, but there’s no pressure.

Each of our students has different constraints on their study time, so our programmes are designed to fit around your availability.
Most students prefer to study at our comfortable training centre so you have instant access to our friendly training team and the “buzz” of learning alongside other students, however where that’s not practical, we also offer a range of online training options with phone support from our trainers that you can access from home or work – it’s your choice.

No matter which learning style you choose, you’ll join a well-respected group of about 300 Croydon students per year, focused on “bettering themselves” and aiming for real careers.
