About this diploma

Create Your Own Learning Path

If you know the subjects you want to study but haven’t quite been able to find the perfect fit for you, this Diploma will give you the control and flexibility you’re looking for. You can select courses from across our range to build your own training programme. 

The courses don’t have to be chosen from the same category so, you could be studying a social media course, then moving on to web design training, then bookkeeping, or whatever you need. Alternatively, it may just be that you want to focus in one specialist area. Whatever works for you, this Diploma can fit the bill.

From the outset our team will work with you to help build the perfect programme. There is just one requirement for this Diploma: the total learning hours for the programme as a whole must reach 100 hours as a minimum, this means you’ll gain 100 CPD points for your learning record. 

On successful completion of your training you’ll receive a prestigious Pitman Training Diploma certificate to verify your skills.

Finance Options

Wherever possible our training is tailored to your needs. The cost of our training programmes depend on the course(s) you choose and varies according to duration and breadth.

Common ways people fund their training include: - 



  • Flexible payment plans to help you spread the cost* available at many of our centres;
  • You could opt to pay upfront.



Company Funded:

Requesting funding from your employers needn’t be a daunting task. Many employers support and encourage their employees with their professional development and consider it a worthwhile investment to fund any training required.

What we can help with:

  • Providing a comprehensive training programme outlining learning outcomes
  • Tailored personnel letters
  • Communication with finance departments to arrange payment options (upfront or payment plan*).


Funding & Grants:

There may be the opportunity to apply for funded grants that can help towards the cost of training. These include the Skills Development Scotland ITAs and the ReAct programme in Wales. All schemes will have different terms and conditions that will need to be met in order to qualify for a grant and these are managed by each individual centre.

We’d recommend you speak to a Course Advisor in your local centre to find out whether they are registered to offer any such schemes and discuss your requirements further.
