WHY TRAIN?

Here at Pitman Training Swords we pride ourselves on delivering highly professional, quality training.  All of our Courses and Diplomas give you the opportunity to learn in a “hands-on” manner, rather than simply sitting and listening and then further down the line, trying to put the theory into practice. This focus on practical learning is one of our unique selling points and by actively applying what you learn to specific tasks, you get the self-confidence and expertise you need to really stand out and become a valuable asset to any potential employer.

When you’re applying for that new job or promotion, your computer skills will need to be up to date and practical.  As one of the leaders in computer training, the Pitman Training Centre in Swords offers you all the training you need: from individual courses on Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint etc., to career changing Microsoft Office Diplomas.

The Pitman Accounting Technician and Book-keeping Diplomas have always been very popular as the core content, including manual book-keeping, payroll and training on the Sage 50 Accounts and Sage Micro pay software, ensure our candidates have the skills that can be immediately put to use by our local businesses.

Our Office and Secretarial training section includes the much in demand Legal and Medical Secretarial training courses along with the Executive Personal Assistant Diploma.

If you're looking to find a new job, progress your career, refresh your skills or simply want to learn something new, then our courses, diplomas and seminars will help you gain valuable practical experience that is instantly transferable to the workplace.  In addition, and to help you successfully achieve your goals, Pitman Training Swords has implemented the following 3 step programme:

  1. You will meet with an experienced course advisor who will help you find the Course or Diploma that is right for you.
  2. Our self-paced, flexible, career focussed training programmes will ensure that you have the qualifications and practical skills necessary to achieve your career goals.
  3. The career focussed workshops which take place on a regular basis focus on ensuring that your CV will stand out from the crowd and be of interest to potential employers. We will assist you in interview preparation and developing a job search strategy.

NEWS

Congratulations To Students On Their New Jobs! Are You Next?

We are always happy to see our students progress in their new careers, thanks to their determination and our career training and support!

 

Here’s how some of our students got on recently...

 

 

From Childcare to Accountancy firm Administrator

Niki worked in Childcare for many years, but she became restless and wanted a new challenge. She came to us for help and based on what she expressed an interest in, we set her up to gain her Secretarial Diploma. She is now working in an accountancy firm as an Administrator. And she doesn’t want to stop there; she is now continuing her training to progress to Accounts Technician!

 

From Shop Assistant to Legal Secretary

Nicole started out as a shop floor assistant and then moved onto working in a cash office, but none of this fulfilled her. Based on what she told us she wanted to do, we set her up to study the Legal Secretarial Diploma and helped her find her new job working as a Legal Secretary in Swords.

 

From Airline to Adminstration

Amanda previously worked in airline security, but she wanted a change of scenery. Based on this, we set her on her way to a new career in Administration, which she is really enjoying!

How to find us

We are located in Chamber Buildings in North Street which is opposite the Apple Green Garage and beside the Carnegie Court Hotel.
