It’s All About YOU and Your Future

Pitman Training was born 180 years ago when Sir Isaac Pitman invented shorthand but he would be amazed and excited to walk into the modern power house of training that we have become today, just as you will be.

Our Oxford Circus Training CentreHere in London’s West End for example, we are slap bang in central London W1 close to Oxford Circus tube station - one of the world’s busiest and brightest retail and commercial areas but don’t be too tempted with the line-up of top retail shops just yet!

Focus on your future and you'll find not only the terrific range of Pitman Training courses, Awards and Diplomas but the latest equipment, a kitchen for coffee and catch-ups and the most unique and flexible training method designed just for your success. With hours to suit you day and evenings, including Saturdays, you can even start right now as many courses start daily.

Best of all our team focuses on your future too, with the support and encouragement you need to achieve your goals as quickly as you want to - you are unique and so is your training. But where to start? That’s easy, with a cup of tea and a chat of course.

Andrew, your experienced Course Adviser will help you choose exactly the right programme and level to meet your current skills and future needs, he is interested in what you want to do and your current skills. He’ll help you explore the best options to build the right programme to meet your career goals. He’ll organise a FREE taster session, too if you want to make sure the study method is right for you.

Next - your first day? Mahar, Senior Training Adviser, and his team make sure you have a thorough start up session, understand how things work and make you comfortable. The course material and method are so well-designed and foolproof that you will just get cracking but ask as many questions as you like, Mahar and team and there to help. Networking with other learners is good too, so you are far from alone!

It’s worth a bit of effort to aim for a Distinction and then, before you know it, you will be hearing of your exam passes and the pop of the champagne cork at our Award evening when you collect your certificate or Diploma. Just imagine your new found confidence, the impact on your CV and the credibility your take to job interviews.

If your need is training for your company and staff, our self-paced method is great as people can fit it around their work commitments with little or no disruption. You could also try our one-day tutor led seminars at our City venue or have our specialised trainers construct your group training and come to you - easy! Talk to Andrew about your corporate needs.
