Reading student Caroline Ritchie becomes a Legal Secretary!

“Before this I had not done a training courses in years! However, with the help of all the Staff at Pitman Training Reading I felt confident in my abilities. If I ever got stuck they were always there to give me the support I needed.

Throughout my training I enjoyed a number of different courses. The one that sticks out most of all has to be Legal Text Processing. I have always liked creating documents with Word, so being able to pair that creative side with the Legal knowledge I have learnt was a great help.

If I had to pick one course that I found the most challenging it would have to be Excel. I have never been that fond of numbers but the training is broken down in such a way that you can always go back and double check anything you’re not too sure on. Furthermore, with the parts I was having trouble with I could always count on Matt, Connie or André to lend a helping hand. If there is anyone out there looking to further their skill set, then look no further than Pitman Training. I would strongly recommend the learning style to anyone!”

Caroline is now working in a temporary Legal Secretary role after Training Centre Manager André Bedlow used his expertise and local business contacts to find work experience for Caroline, with a top well-known Legal firm in Reading. She told us that without the help and training from Pitman Training Reading, she would have never had the confidence to apply for this position, let alone get the job. We wish Caroline the best of luck in her new role and we are all very proud of her!
