Welcome to the seaside, where you will find the town of Hastings. It is located southeast of London and east to the county of Lewes. Hastings makes its name by being the UK’s largest beach-based fishing fleet. The town recently won accreditation for its sustainable methods. Until the modernization of its tourism industry, fishing was its largest industry. There are several industrial enterprises that include engineering, catering, motoring, and construction. The vast majority of employment is found within heath, public service, retail and education. The university of Hastings doubled in size in 2012 and is located in close proximity to the train station.


This fast growing community is an ideal location to bring Pitman Training Centres and offers significant untapped potential especially for the young professional seeking advancement in their fields.
