Norwich is known to be a dynamic, contemporary city which has managed to uphold its impressive roots of medieval heritage. This has contributed to it being recognised as one of the UK's fastest growing urban areas. The city's main appeal is that it offers an exceptional quality of life by combining city living with easy access to the countryside, coast and the Broads.

The Pitman Training franchising model is such that it works best in areas of large population, where there is a strong educational ethos (i.e. universities in the area). Therefore having a strong presence in thriving cities such as Norwich is of great importance to us at Pitman Training as we believe in our ability to enhance and contribute to the growth and success of these local economies. 


Norwich's prestigious university and teaching hospital have one of the highest graduate retention rates in the country and these combined with the world class research park, international airport and a skilled workforce add to making the economy and creating the opportunity for many businesses of all types develop and thrive.

The city's largest employment sectors are business and financial services, public services, retail, manufacturing and tourism. These fit well with the Pitman Training brand and product because the main core of our products are built in line with career paths in administration, medical secretarial, finance and similar white collar roles.
