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.


The Pitman Training experience is built around student needs and has been developed using a combination of experience and research.
