Helen McAllister had been working in the same role for 20+ years but decided she wanted a change. After finding Pitman Training, she took the Professional Executive PA Diploma with AAT to get her out of her comfort zone.

“With my 40th birthday coming up, I realised I was stuck in a rut, lacking confidence and struggling with depression. I decided to take the Professional Executive PA Diploma with AAT because I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it… no excuses!”

“After looking around for training courses, I decided to go with Pitman because it’s such a reputable company. Pitman also offered online learning programmes which were a great bonus because I worked full time and getting into the centre was challenging.”

“The staff were all very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They supplied me with coursework booklets to aid my learning and provided a learning coach, which was wonderful. The access to one- to-one learning massively benefitted me and kept me motivated.”

“Pitman is a friendly, encouraging place to learn. The course has helped a lot with my confidence and motivation, which in turn has helped me with my depression. It just goes to show, you’re never too old to learn.”
