Yeovil is a town and civil parish located in the district of South Somerset. It is located close to the Somerset border and only 64km south of Bristol. During the second world war, it was renowned for its aircraft and defence industries which made it a target for bombing. Aircraft and defence remain influential industries in Yeovil. The main employer in the town is the aviation group AgustaWestland. Additionally, Yeovil is also the home to Yeovil College which specializes in land-based studies. The University Centre Yeovil is also located in the town.


The emphasis on academic and industry excellence make Yeovil stand out as another city on the UK map where Pitman Training feels a centre would be ideally placed.
