Teeline Shorthand for Beginners

Here at Pitman Training in London (Croydon, Notting Hill and Holborn) and Manchester, we know all about shorthand and shorthand training!

The Pitman name is synonymous with learning shorthand, so you can be assured of a high quality learning experience when you train with us.

Teeline is generally considered to be the shorthand method that is the fastest to learn, and the easiest to use for taking dictation.

This popular Teeline course was written by the co-author of “Teeline Revised”, and is recommended by Teeline Education Ltd.

Our training is designed so you can study at times that will suit your own lifestyle – you can start anytime at our Manchester, Notting Hill and Holborn training centres.

There are no start dates, no timetables; you simply come to study during our long opening hours which include evenings and Saturdays.
