It is hard to do justice to the potential that India holds for opportunities with Pitman Training, but with the world's second largest population and an economy that has grown at one of the fastest rates in the world, the time could not be better for Pitman Training to re-enter the Indian market. The economy continues to modernise and develop, and with the large cities becoming important regional and global centres of trade, technology and business, there is a continual and growing need to provide outstanding training for the workforce.

The strong historical ties and mutual respect between India & the UK mean that the Pitman Training name is already familiar and respected in many parts of the country, indeed at the stenographers guild in Chennai a statue to our founder Sir Isaac Pitman is regularly adorned with garlands and flowers. The chance to expand and grow our opportunities in India is seemingly limitless...


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.
