Pitman Training

For 185 years, Pitman Training has enjoyed an unrivalled reputation as an elite training provider and with centres offering over 250 courses, it is clear to see why our franchise network is growing at such an extraordinary rate. Since Sir Isaac Pitman created Pitman Shorthand, we have become synonymous with high-quality, modern training courses and diplomas across a variety of subjects. As a business, Pitman has become an education-technology specialist focused on helping people find work or achieve greater success in their careers.

As an ed-tech company, our greatest advantage is our curriculum delivery method, in which we have invested heavily. Your Centre Manager and Learning Coaches facilitate the delivery of our multi-modal learning courses ensuring you can focus on developing your business and making vital connections in the community. When joining Pitman, you don’t need previous ‘teaching’ or ‘training’ experience. We teach you everything you need to know to become a successful franchise partner. 

At the start of your franchising journey, we will provide one-week of dedicated training at our head office with contributions from each department in the business, plus time in one of our corporately owned centres. You will then get on-the-job training within your premises and world-class training on our virtual learning environment – Pitman Campus. During this training, you will learn the Pitman Way – a focal point for ongoing training. You are also given support in all areas of the business from operations through to sales. You also have unlimited access to our portfolio of hundreds of training programmes to boost your skills whether that be in bookkeeping, digital marketing or communication/sales skills. 

To ensure we are offering our franchise partners the very best in ongoing support, we run regional meetings around the country where new ideas and peer development are encouraged. We also bring in external specialists in areas such as sales performance for our network to enhance their skills. Pitman franchise partners benefit from regular visits and mentoring from a dedicated Franchise Development Manager as well as unlimited support from our knowledgeable customer support team. Plus, you will have access to our central marketing team including a digital specialist, graphic designer and use of pitman-marketing.com – a store of marketing materials.

As a franchisor we offer:
