Pitman Training Reviews

Our students are people of all ages and nationalities. Some have very basic computer skills, whilst others are already Legal Secretaries, Medical Secretaries, Executive PAs, Bookkeepers or IT professionals – the list goes on!

Many come to Pitman Training looking for a change in career or to get skills to give them the edge in the jobs market.

Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen students leave having grown in confidence, with many having won promotions or started their dream career as a result of their training with us.

Pitman Training is about quality and flexibility of learning. Students love that they can drop in and study when it suits them, and that they can study from home if they can’t reach one of our training centres in London and Manchester.

On this page you can find out more about some of our students, what they thought of their time with us and where they are now.
