Change your future and change lives with a Pitman Training Franchise

Since Sir Isaac Pitman revolutionised office communications in 1837, the Pitman Training brand has remained synonymous with high quality office training provision throughout the UK and Commonwealth. We continue to be the country's leading independent training provider offering world class office and IT skills in our modern training centres to thousands of students across the UK and around the world.

Pitman Training is also the UK and Ireland's best established, franchised training provider, helping transform careers and change lives through self-paced vocational training. Our franchisees are specialists in Office, IT, Administration, Finance and Business skills, offering a flexible approach to training for employment.

Quality is at the heart of the Pitman Training experience and the strength of the Pitman brand is unrivalled in the sector. We also truly meet a customer need, which gives us a genuine competitive advantage. It’s why we’ve continued to grow and why we’re searching for more talented and ambitious franchise owners.

Our training is delivered using our market leading combination of audio guides, workbooks and real live versions of software. Students can start at whatever time they like, and work to their own timeframe and requirements to fit their own lifestyle. We pride ourselves on giving the best and most in depth training that is available, and our delivery method means that as a franchisee, you don't need to train or recruit teachers. You are ready to go from day one!

We call our offer 'The Pitman Advantage' and if you or your organisation has got the right blend of skills, drive and determination, we’d love to hear from you.

Meet the Team

I am proud to be representing Pitman Training Group, expanding the Franchise Partnerships by helping others join our successful network of training centres. I am a QFP (Qualified Franchise Professional) and like the challenge of the franchising environment and greatly enjoy building good relationships with our franchise partners to help them start and continue to grow their business.

My role as Franchise Sales Manager is to focus on our UK development by finding ambitious and motivated individuals. I will be your key point of contact from the start of your journey towards becoming part of the Pitman Training network, supporting you in all stages of the initial process, and will continue to provide support and guidance through assistance with training, business development plans and ongoing advice.

Having been with the business since 1998, and coming from a financial background, I have been able to immerse myself in all areas of the business in order to ensure that we are developing a profitable franchise network across the globe.

Understanding the confidence and financial security of franchisees, as well as the benefits of running your own business and being part of such a large infrastructure as ours, helps us really make an impact on the current landscape of the vocational training market - and is also what keeps me on my toes on a daily basis! I work to co-ordinate our approach, and ensure we are always developing new ways of supporting your business with the best available opportunities.

I love being a part of creating successful businesses and working with a large range of individuals. All the team at Pitman Training are passionate about developing the franchise model to its full potential.

With over 20 years' experience in a wide variety of franchise businesses across the UK, I lead our team of franchise development managers, who assist with the business development of each and every franchisee. The support that our team gives starts at the initial enquiry stage, helping to give perspective and tangible evidence of the success that can be achieved across our network.

However, it also goes so much further than that, evolving into a close working relationship which encompasses; day to day operation, sales process, marketing activities, training and the sharing of 'best practice'. Having a team dedicated to providing insights and hands-on support as and when you need it, is really what sets us apart as a Franchisor.
