That’s why our students are so sought after by employers – there are few people who have the depth of skill and the knowledge of how to apply it at work as Pitman Training students.

That’s why from time to time, we even get unadvertised jobs passed through to us by employers eager to snap up highly skilled people before they enrol with employment agencies.

Our training centre in Manchester is rated 4.7 out of 5 based on 21 Google reviews. See all reviews.

For most people, the big attractions of studying with us are:

Long opening hours, flexi-attendance, expert trainers and a central Manchester location... How good can it get?

Well, wait till you see the quality of our training materials and the way the courses are delivered. It’s truly something different!

Not only that, but most of our famous diploma programmes have an element of tailorability to them, enabling students to match their interests and intrinsic abilities to the needs of the jobs market.

That’s probably why our students have such a high exam pass rate, with the majority scooping distinctions!

Our goal is “changing lives, building futures” and we try hard to apply that vision to everything we do for our students, with the focus on giving them the skills to get into high-status, well-paid careers.

The best way to understand why we’re so different is to come and visit us. You could even have a demo on a course while you’re here.
