Welcome to Newport! Newport is a principal city in Wales located on the River Usk and only 19km northeast of Cardiff. In its early years, it was the site of the last large-scale armed insurrection in Britain. Today, the economy is primarily based upon three major centres for employment. These areas include the city centre, business parks and the M4 motorway junction. The city also saw major regeneration projects undertaken in recent years that opened the doors for job creation including commercial advancement and transportation modernisation including railway and aviation.


With an unemployment rate that sits well below the national average, Newport is a phenomenal opportunity for the highly motivated person who is seeking to tap into the market of adult education and training. In  addition to the career development opportunities, the universities also offer a significant market for Pitman Training.
