Sarah Glasgow (PA in the making), Secretarial Diploma, March 2013
“I’m studying for a Secretarial diploma at Pitman Training in Notting Hill and I’ve had a great time so far.
I am a career-changer and I feel positive and confident about the new things to come thanks to the course. I’m learning practical skills that I’ll actually be able to put to use in my career every day.
I just love having those, ‘oh, so that’s how you do that,’ moments as I finally get to grips with part of the Office suite that I’ve used for years, but never used properly. It’s so easy now.
I love that studying is flexible and fits in around my daily life too.
Thanks a lot!”
