Ever since Sir Isaac Pitman launched the Pitman system over 175 years ago, our name has been synonymous with shorthand and shorthand training.
175 years on, we are proud to be able to offer a fantastic range of Shorthand and Teeline courses:
- Teeline for Beginners
- Teeline Fast!
- Teeline Speed Development
- Teeline Refresher
- Shorthand Faster
- Shorthand Fast
With the exception of the one day SpeedWriting Seminar, the above courses are all available to start any time, and can be studied daytimes, evenings, Saturday’s or a mixture of these.
To find the right Shorthand or Teeline course for you, why not get in touch and speak to one of our Course Advisors?
They’ll be able to assess your skill level and advise you which course is most suited to your career path.
You can even have a free demo of the course whilst you’re there!
To arrange your free careers consultation or enrol on a course, just give us a call or send us an email.
How We Train
The majority of our Teeline and Shorthand Courses are self-paced, and can be studied at one of our four locations in London and Manchester, with the exception of the SpeedWriting Seminar which takes place in London on a selection of dates throughout the year.
You’ll work though the course in your own time, with an audio guide, workbook, and the help and support of our expert training team at the centres.
Our flexible training methodology makes it really easy for you to fit your course around your other commitments – you can drop in and study during the day, evenings, on Saturdays, or a mixture of these.
We’re based in four central locations in London and Manchester:
Alternatively, if you can’t get to one of our training centres, some Teeline and Shorthand courses may be available to study from home.
Please ask a Course Advisor for more information.
If you’re looking for a comprehensive PA course, we recommend looking at our nationally recognised Executive PA Diploma, which will provide you with the skills employers are looking for in a top PA.
If it’s a short course you’re looking for, we also run a number of one or two day seminars for PAs and Executive Assistants.
More About Shorthand
We frequently hear from senior secretaries who learned classical Pitman shorthand before World War 2 and Teeline using journalists breaking stories in daily newspapers.
We have a constant flow of students from all walks of life and varying professions come to study shorthand with us, proving that today, shorthand is still in demand!
From being an almost redundant skill in the 1990’s, job advertisements are now full of requirements for Teeline or SpeedWriting used for taking dictation and in particular for minutes in meetings.
