Our Story

Change Your Future and Change Lives With a Pitman Training Franchise

Since Sir Isaac Pitman revolutionised office communications in 1837, the Pitman Training brand has remained synonymous with high quality office training provision throughout the UK and Commonwealth. We continue to be the country’s leading independent training provider offering world class office and IT skills in our modern training centres to thousands of students across the UK and around the world.

Pitman Training is also the UK and Ireland’s best established, franchised training provider, helping transform careers and change lives through self-paced vocational training. Our franchisees are specialists in Office, IT, Administration, Finance and Business skills, offering a flexible approach to training for employment.

Quality is at the heart of the Pitman Training experience and the strength of the Pitman brand is unrivalled in the sector. We also truly meet a customer need, which gives us a genuine competitive advantage. It's why we've continued to grow and why we're searching for more talented and ambitious franchise owners.

Our training is delivered using our market leading combination of audio guides, workbooks and real live versions of software. Students can start at whatever time they like, and work to their own timeframe and requirements to fit their own lifestyle. We pride ourselves on giving the best and most in depth training that is available, and our delivery method means that as a franchisee, you don’t need to train or recruit teachers. You are ready to go from day one!

We call our offer ‘The Pitman Advantage’ and if you or your organisation has got the right blend of skills, drive and determination, we'd love to hear from you.
