Our Training Centre
Here at Pitman Training Cardiff we offer a relaxed atmosphere and a warm, friendly place to learn…where the kettle is always on!!
We have 3 large training rooms catering for up to 50 people at any one time. Modern and up to date technology is combined with our open, comfortable lounge area for you to relax and take a break from the training. We also have a kitchen where you can help yourself to tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and treats. Every morning we hold a breakfast club where you can help yourself to toast, crumpets and croissants and have some ‘me’ time.
Meet the Team
Leanne has been managing the centre from day one and is very passionate about the service we offer and the success we achieve for our learners.
All our training supervisors were once learners at Pitman Training Cardiff and now use their knowledge and expertise to help others achieve their goals. Phill, Hazia, Helen and Rebecca look forward to helping you soon!!
Our friendly and supportive team are all previous students of Pitman Training Cardiff and enjoy getting to know each learner personally, discovering which course suits their individual needs and then helping them every step of the way in reaching their goal.
Each learner will have the full support of the training supervisor team once they get started and in addition, will have a designated mentor to personally help, motivate and support them from beginning to end, both in the centre and learning from home/work.
For those individuals who are looking for the next step, we have strong relationships with both local employers and recruitment agencies and offer a full career package, from careers consultation, identifying the right course for you, our free CV clinics and exclusive employment opportunities.
At Pitman Training Cardiff, we have many years experience in helping people realise their potential and change their lives. Our success rates speak for themselves, with around 97% of our learners achieving a pass or better and over 70% walking in to a job within 6 months!
Pitman Training’s qualifications are recognised nationally and internationally and our flexible training allows students to start and learn anytime within a fully supported environment, helping them to achieve their goals.
The first thing we do is have an informal chat and get an understanding of what your needs, current skills and future goals are. We then help you decide which course or diploma is right for you and your ambitions.
You can get started at anytime and learn whenever we are open, 6 days a week Monday through to Saturday and 2 late evenings a week until 8pm. We can support you from home and/or in work…the choice is yours!!
We can also deliver the training using distance learning if you are unable to travel into the centre regularly. We are currently helping students from Merthyr, Pontypridd, Tonypandy, Caerphilly, Bargoed, Monmouth, Chepstow and Brecon. Call us today and we can have a chat about how we can help and support you.
Whether you want to become a Receptionist, Admin Assistant, Medical/Legal Secretary, Executive PA, Book-Keeper, IT Technician or Web Design Specialist, we can help you get where you want to be.
We have strong relationships with local employers and recruitment agencies and offer free professional one to one CV advice from our CV expert. We also have a monthly scholarship programme, where we offer one month’s experience working in the centre to help students gain work experience and put their new skills to the test.
We have joined partnerships with Office Angels and Now Accountancy and are actively helping individuals into their new role, utilising the skills they have learnt. We also help support individuals who want to add some work experience to their CV and we have connections to a variety of organisations and charities to help with this.
We deal with various funding schemes and also offer interest free career development loans. All available options can be discussed with one of our friendly course advisors.
With our FREE skills assessment we can understand your business and identify how we can help. We can tailor our courses to the specific needs of your business and the individual, ensuring we deliver a productive and measurable result.
Each individual learns at a pace they feel comfortable with, ensuring they take in the new skills and then apply them on a day to day basis, improving productivity and efficiency. Our flexible training also has the benefit of staff learning at different times, so no need for large numbers to be out of the office at any one time. We can deliver your tailored training at the centre or at your premises both on an individual basis and to a group of any size.
