PHILIPPINES OVERVIEW

The Philippines is a key strategic target for Pitman Training to develop new centres for a number of important reasons. With a very large population and an economy that is developing rapidly and expected to be within the top 15 economies in the world by 2050, there is a growing demand for specific vocational training and education that is intended to give skills that are needed in a modern and developed workforce.

The Philippines has been identified by Goldman Sachs as one of the "Next Eleven" of countries that are expected to become global players in terms of trade and industry. We are keen to be a part of that growth and provide the outstanding Pitman Training that will help the workforce meet that challenge!

AREA OPPORTUNITIES

English is one of the two official languages of the Philippines, and is the key language of education from primary through to tertiary level. This abundant supply of English speakers and competitive labour costs have enabled the Philippines to become a choice destination for foreign companies wishing to establish call centres and other outsourcing operations. 
Pitman Training is ideally positioned to provide training for the parts of the workforce that are keen to capitalise on the strategic importance of the Philippines as a centre for business. Our courses are specifically designed to give the skills that employers want their staff to have from day one.

The major urban areas are increasingly becoming important English language hubs for the wider Asian region, and we are keen to work with the best quality schools and private skills providers in order to offer our training.
