Sarah Glasgow (PA in the making!), Secretarial Course – Diploma Level, March 2013
“I’m studying for a Secretarial Diploma at Pitman Training in London’s 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 this Secretarial 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 parts of the Microsoft 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!”
Karen Louise Sharpe, September 2013
“Great centre – very nice environment. Great trainers, especially Roop. Extremely pleased.”
Christina, October 2013
“Pitman Training in London has helped me in many ways. One thing I am most proud of is being able to type without looking at the keyboard.
When I started I never thought that it would be possible. Now if I closed my eyes with the light off, I would still manage to type a sentence, and I think that’s amazing! It gives you a wonderful feeling of accomplishment.
I have also gained confidence in Microsoft Office, and have learnt a lot from the lovely and kind trainers who were really helpful.”
Ewa Biela, June 2013
“Straight after completing my diploma at Pitman Training in London’s Notting Hill, I already started applying for better jobs.
After a couple of days I was offered a position as Office Administrator and PA and accepted it straight away. My new role is really challenging, but this makes my days much more interesting.
I would definitely recommend Pitman Training in London for PA and Secretarial training, and to anyone who is looking for something more in their daily routine.”
