South Africa has long been the economic powerhouse of the African continent, with a diverse and developed economy, and it is well known as the hub for the region’s service industry. Education is at the forefront of the countries policies with many ties back to the UK in terms of structure. The English language is also commonly used across the country as a language of business and is important for many companies that trade internationally.

There are a number of key territories in South Africa that Pitman Training are keen to develop over the next 12 months so we are looking for multiple partners or one particularly strong organisation that wishes to work with us to develop the country fully. With a number of large developed cities with strong central business districts, there is a ready-made demand for our courses!


Our training is delivered in a hands on vocational style to provide the type of skills that employers are looking for from their staff from day one. With the large number of large employers across South Africa, there is a demand for quality support staff that are able to work effectively and quickly to a world class level.

We will provide our new Pitman Training partners in each city with all of the training and support that they need in order to get their centres set up and ready to launch. Our success is your success and we will be with you every step of the way.
