Pitman Training | Our Story
Pitman Training has come a long way since Sir Isaac Pitman first created the method of shorthand in 1837. With over 100 training centres throughout UK, Ireland and overseas, we still train thousands of students in shorthand and typing. However, our talents stretch further than these two essential business skills. Today, our focus is on helping students improve their skills so they can achieve the career of their dreams – whatever that dream might be.
Our courses range from one to two day business skills seminars to short courses in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access and Publisher), typing, book-keeping and health and safety. For students who wish to take a longer term study programme, we offer a wide range of Diplomas – from secretarial and business IT to Microsoft Office and finance. Whichever course you choose, you are helped along the way by our experienced and friendly tutors in our training centres.
The Pitman Training method of learning is unique. You can start your course at a time to suit you – there is no need to wait for the start of college term! This means you can study at your own pace. Our centres are open six days a week (Monday to Saturday) including late night openings as required.
So whether you are looking for a new career, or you have your eye on a promotion or you are returning to work after a career break, we can tailor a training programme to suit you and your needs.
We look forward to welcoming you to a Pitman Training centre soon!
