Matt Thompson: From Student to Centre Manager Keen to Share Experience

We are delighted to share the story with you of Matt Thompson age 25, who first entered Pitman Training in 2008 as a student, and is now heading up our lovely modern new town centre premises at Saxton Gate West in Milton Keynes.

Taking pride of place in a team that is looking forward to further expansion, Matt is excited about being able to help thousands more people from across the region gain accreditations and practical skills to help them get the jobs they want.

Born and bred in Cranfield, Matt progressed from a student at Pitman to then work within the team doing book keeping and admin work. He then expanded his responsibilities and was promoted to work as a Training Supervisor and his journey now continues as centre manager.

Matt said: “I love this job. Working with local people to help them prepare themselves in the best possible way for finding the career they want is really satisfying and I really enjoy hearing about people’s aspirations and working with them to help them achieve these.

He added:  “It’s still a really tough employment market out there and we’re here to help our students stand out from the crowd. I’m looking forward to using my experience of training with Pitman to help others. It’s a really flexible way to top up your skills and can be done at a pace to suit each individual – that’s one of the things that made it easier for me and the support around from the tutors also makes is much more enjoyable than trying to do a course at home by yourself”.

Matt is based at Norfolk House, 80a Saxton Gate West, MK9 2DL
