In just 25 hours speeds of 20-40+ words per minute are perfectly achievable, even if you have little prior experience. Comprising 10 lessons, you’ll also receive guidance on ergonomics, technique and accuracy.
“The great thing about this place,” says Brazilian student, Gina, “is that you can come in to study when you want. I work in Starbucks and I never know what my shifts will be, so this is great!”
The centre is open from 09:00 am till 20:00 pm most weekdays and all days Saturday too, so it’s very convenient for people like Gina.
You can also start a course at any time. There’s no waiting for term to start!
And you’ll love our trainers, all of whom started as students themselves, so they know how to guide you towards the highest exam marks. In fact, most of our students pass their exams with distinction!
“We’re the next best thing to experience,” laughs Jo Gallacher, training manager at Pitman Training Notting Hill.
“Our courses are so practical and thorough, our students are often better at jobs than people who have been doing them for years!”
While that seems a rather bold boast, Jo is quite right.
With over 140 years of experience in training people for office work, Pitman Training’s approach to skilling people up to become PAs, secretaries, bookkeepers, administrators and general office workers certainly pays off.
Many students at our Notting Hill centre have secured well-paid, high status jobs with all kinds of organisations including glossy magazine publishers, banks, and advertising agencies.
“Employers consider Pitman Training qualifications as proof of operational excellence and as a result, they often come to us with unadvertised jobs, knowing they’ll find the highest quality people in Notting Hill,” adds Jo.
The starting point for anyone who wants to consider Pitman Training is for them to come and have a chat with one of our friendly Course Advisors, who will identify the best value approach to achieving their career goals.
Visitors will learn that they 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.
Best of all is that our diploma programmes can be tailored to the individual, allowing students to choose elective modules that reflect their own specific talents and the needs of the local jobs market.
And of course, anyone visiting the centre is welcome to sample a couple of courses for free!
