About Us

Pitman Training Hammersmith is run by a vastly experienced and dedicated team, and is headed up by Kathy Connolly & Mike Connolly.

Kathy Connolly was working part-time as a Personal Assistant whilst her children were at school. She wanted to acquire some formal PA training and decided to start a PA course with Pitman Training. Upon completion of her training, she was so impressed with the benefits of Pitman Training that she decided to work there as a course advisor. Since then she has never looked back. In 2009 she set up her own centre in Hammersmith,and it has remained an important part of the community since then..

Kathy has fond memories of her days as a Pitman Training student and her main piece of advice for students would be: "Know the job you want to do before you begin and then train to acquire the skills you need to get that job. APPLY for that job as soon as you begin your training. Every day that you train is one more day closer to the job of your dreams. Don't worry about having the confidence,we will help to give you that!"

In Mike Connolly’s career, he has worked for several large organisations ranging across a wide variety of corporate functions which includes Education, Law and HR. He has a wealth of experience in dealing with training and recruitment issues and completely understands both the local market and the potential jobs that are available to our students at Pitman Training Hammersmith.

With his contacts with employers and agencies in particular, he is able to advise our students on CV writing, interview techniques and all the areas that students need to concentrate on to get their preferred job. He knows what potential employers are looking for when candidates apply for PA, Secretarial, IT or Finance jobs.

His advice when asked how best to help our students is: "Once our student starts a Pitman course their skills begin to increase from day one. As they progress through the course content, they quickly acquire most of the skills that they will need for the job that they want. The main thing the student needs to prepare for then is to link what they have done at Pitman Training with the job they want at the interview This approach enables the employer to see how they will add value to his or her business from day one."

Helen O’Mahony is an ex-student of ours and has undertaken many of the courses available here at Pitman Training Hammersmith. She now works as part of our team part-time as a trainer and because of her previous experience completely understands the issues that students can sometimes face when learning new skills.

She assists us ably when needed and tells us that the biggest challenge for a student is overcoming the fear of beginning a new course. Helen says: “Some students are worried at the beginning that because they have been out of education for so long they may find progress through the course to be difficult. Some have taken a break whilst bringing up a family, others may have chosen to take a career break, however they are amazed how quickly they make progress once they have started. Their confidence increases visibly with every course. By the end, they find themselves speeding through each course module and are able to take on anything that comes their way."
