Welcome to Pitman Training in London’s Holborn, the cutting edge training centre in the heart of antiquity!

In a modern, comfortable office block in London’s High Holborn sits a multi-cultural group of 50-60 at computers, headsets in their ears, fingers gliding over the keyboards like Masters of the Universe.

You’d be forgiven for thinking they’re top City professionals. But no – you’d be wrong! They’re Pitman Training students, men and women of all ages and nationalities, enjoying the most flexible way to earn nationally recognised qualifications in all kinds of subject areas, such as office skills, secretarial, bookkeeping, event management, admin, social media and lots more.

Slap bang in the middle of the City’s (and the nation’s) legal quarter, this is the place where ambitious people can start a course at any time and study at times to suit them during the centre’s long opening hours, which include daytimes, evenings and Saturdays.Our Holborn Training Centre

Using self-paced training with on-site training support at its core, the centre is able to offer training in much the same style as gym membership. That is to say, you pay your fee and attend when it suits you.

The result is that students can decide how quickly or how slowly they complete their training programmes.

Many get through their studies as quickly as they can while others linger longer, enjoying being in a part of the city which, although only a short walk from Covent Garden, is rarely visited by tourists. We like to keep it a bit of a secret!

Students constantly tell us how they enjoy lunch in the secret cloister café in Temple, walk past the British Museum, swing by Dickens’ “Olde Curiosity Shoppe” and slip through the beautiful Lincolns Inn Fields on their way to see us.

Why Train With Us?

We’re different from traditional colleges – there are no term dates or timetables! We pride ourselves on providing convenient and flexible ways for you to fulfil your training needs!

If you’re thinking about changing your life, Pitman Training in London’s Holborn is a great place to start.

Whether your confidence level is set at “I think I could” or even at “I know I can,” we’ll provide you with just the right level of support for you.

Having decided to “better themselves,” most people choose to train with us because our qualifications frequently lead to well-paid high status careers in the world’s most exciting city.

It’s a fact. Of the nearly 500 students who graduate with us every year, many will go into the media, the City, fashion, hedge funds or any number of burgeoning industries.

Some will slip into one of the unadvertised jobs placed with us by discerning employers familiar with the quality of Pitman Training students. Others will opt for the competitive nature of the recruitment agency route, blowing away the competition and securing the top jobs.

Pitman Training has always enjoyed a significant presence in the Holborn area, the world famous Pitman College having been located in Chancery Lane from 1870.

But far from being rooted in the past, today our Holborn centre offers cutting edge vocational training using the latest technology, supported by a young and vibrant training team.

We’re a Microsoft IT Academy, and are recognised by CILEX, AAT, BCS and OCR.

Our Course Advisory Team is trained to listen, to enable them to tailor make career-enhancing programmes for each of our students. 

You can start your training right away – even today if you wish!

And you can study at hours to suit you during our long opening times which include daytimes, evenings and Saturdays.

Why not visit us to see at first hand why over 80% of our students pass their exams with distinction? Just call us on 0207 416 6049 and we’ll take care of everything.
