Welcome to Newton Abbot. This market town is located in the Teignbridge District of Devon. It rapidly grew during the Victorian era with its development of the South Devon Railway and later became a major steam engine shed. Today, the local economy is largely based around the Brunel industrial estate. Newton Abbots is also home to two colleges including South Devon UTC which is a technical college. This focus on education paired with the local emphasis on skill development provide a key market for Pitman Training Centres.
