Whether you want training for
yourself or are resourcing on behalf of
your company you will find a
large portfolio of courses all
ready to go, best-practise methodology, great
course materials and a truly
people-focussed culture to make sure it is just right for your needs.
Whether you are investing in your
own training or it is being organised by
company, it is important that the
learning method and style fits the need. At
Pitman Training Centres we have a good choice of methods and styles to fit
around your lifestyle or working life, so you are spoilt for choice. Important
things to consider are:
WHEN: Full-time or part-time?
WHAT: Beginner, intermediate or expert level?
WHERE: At the training centre, your office or at home?
HOW: Self-paced flexible, tutor-led class, online, one-2-one coaching
or a mix?
Flexible training means the course can start at any time - so tomorrow if there
is a place free! You set your own hours and work at your own pace in our
relaxed, quietly focused atmosphere, supported by experienced Training Advisers.
There is a guideline number of hours for each course which can be programmed
over a few days, weeks or months. You progress at your chosen pace dependent on
your aims - you can do it full-time and fast or pace yourself part-time around
work or personal commitments. You progress through your workbook, one module at
a time, at your own pace. You are in control - you can go back and recap or skip
through a feature you already know - the choice is yours.
Our training centres are open
all day Monday to Friday as well as some evenings and Saturday.
We realise that online learning makes it easier for you to pick up and put down
course at a time to suit you. Pitman Training
Distance learning enables you
to do just that...
Distance learning has become more and more popular in the UK, as people are keen
to progress their careers and try to fit training into their busy lives. Pitman
Training Distance Learning gives you the flexibility to study online at home or
from the office, with the full support of our centre teams. This way it’s even
easier for you to pick up and put down your course, and fit it into your life.
We appreciate that it isn’t always easy to get to one of our
training centres, but we don’t want
that to stop you from learning new skills! With our distance learning courses
you get the best of both worlds.
Unlike any other online or distance learning training provider, Pitman Training
has a national network of local course advisors, who will support you throughout
your learning. You can get in touch with an advisor by telephone, via email or

Alternatively we can run any of our courses just for your company
‘off-the-shelf’ or tailored to suit your group – on-site, at a venue near you or
in our training rooms. They are generally one or two day courses, but many can
be tailored to run as half-day sessions for corporate groups.
The material is always first-class and our tutors are highly skilled at giving
you a fantastic learning experience. Up-to-date adult learning methods and an
interactive style means your interest is captured throughout each session and

Sometimes the ability to train directly from home or the workspace is the key.
So may prefer to choose our online courses in IT and
keyboard skill. We provide
a start-up session at the training centre of your office for companies and then
you can access them through dial up and Broadband connections on any computer
for your ease and convenience. While these provide the perfect cost-effective
training environment, they are best suited to those already comfortable with IT
and working online.
Companies particularly often need a mix of learning. With groups who are at
different skills levels, work at different locations and have different working
hours you often need a mix of all of the above to make it work. Our team can
tailor the programme to match your training aims and financial needs.
This can include on-site workshops, help lines, floor-walking support during
software transition, one-2-one coaching/teaching for senior staff, support
materials and quickstart guides.
