Portsmouth is a great waterfront city situated within the South East of England - which is known as the economic powerhouse of the UK. The city is world renowned as the home to the Royal Navy and a tourism hotspot, but thanks to major developments and investments it is now also becoming a cosmopolitan business location.

Portsmouth, with its innovative and ambitious development plans for the local economy is the perfect location for a Pitman Training centre.


Already recognised as a strong economy hub with a number of high profile UK and multinational companies such as BAE Systems, EAD Astrium, IBM and the Pall Corporation based there, Portsmouth is also currently undergoing a major transformation with over a billion pounds being invested in to its infrastructure, amenities and new commercial developments. 

There is significant GVA growth despite the economic downturn, which is in part due to the number of successful companies in the area. More still the city is set to undergo transformational change over the next 20 years that will result in significant employment and population growth. The development of the sub region’s economy, regeneration of the city and planned office, industrial, hotel, retail and housing developments will see Portsmouth continue evolving and becoming more successful.

Pitman Training Group are eager to find a new franchise partner who sees the vision of Portsmouth and wishes to take our brand and quality training product to this thriving city and contribute towards its future success.
