The Pitman Training Centre in Edinburgh was established by Tom and Fran Maclean back in February 1987 which makes it the oldest established in the network.
The experience of Tom and Fran is still the driving force behind the business to this date and they are ably supported by their team who have years of experience working with learners at all stages of their development.
Going back to the days of manual typewriters the Maclean’s have seen a great change in the working practices over the years and have always been at the forefront of your experience by introducing the latest technology to their students. From the initial days with manual typewriters to the current latest in computing technology, the one consistent thing has been the quality of the training products.
The real thing that makes the Pitman Training experience unique is the flexibility it offers students to be able to gain new skills while retaining their current lifestyle and commitments. Due to the unique tutor system students can pick and choose when they come into the centre to complete many of our courses. This allows them to be able to timetable their training round family, work and social commitments.
Despite the flexibility our team of tutors is available in the centre to help and guide the learners through their study programmes and we do believe that we have some of the best views over Edinburgh from the training room looking north to distract you when you require a break.
