Nigeria is all set to become an economic superpower within this generation, firstly outstripping South Africa in 2014 as the largest economy in the continent as it grows. According to a report from Citigroup, Nigeria has been included as one of two African countries to be classed as a Global Growth Generator with GDP growth expected to be the highest in the world between 2010-2050.

With this phenomenal growth potential comes investment from around the world, and the massive industry that that brings. The demand from employers for a highly skilled and driven workforce, with a recognisable education will be almost unprecedented on a global scale, and so the UK's education super-brand, Pitman Training, is perfectly positioned to provide the training that the Nigerian people will need to fill the job demand.

We are actively looking for partners, alongside our new partners in Lagos, to join us to expand the reach of Pitman Training and take on the enormous opportunities that are already there.


The longstanding historical connection between Nigeria and the UK mean that the power of the Pitman Training brand is already strong and has potential to grow stronger still. We have excellent partners in Lagos, who opened their in 2014, and more recently our Port Harcourt franchisee, who opened in 2016, and we are looking for new partners to join with us to continue the growth throughout the other parts of the country.

Our world class training will give students the skills that they need, and that employers are searching for. They will learn how to work in a modern English language office environment, preparing them with the certification needed to forge a great career.
