Pitman Training allows student to discover his potential and switch careers

Diploma Studied Office Skills Diploma

There are many benefits to learning a new skill. In fact, those who choose to study learning courses after school and in later life can broaden their horizons and increase their chances of grabbing the career they have always dreamed of.

Alex Findlay is the perfect example of somebody who developed himself by taking an adult education course with Pitman Training to achieve his ambitions of getting a white-collar role. Formerly a warehouse worker, Alex was eager to take a different career path and decided to undergo Pitman’s Office Skills Diploma. Just weeks after completing his course, Alex landed a job with his local police station as a Case Administrator.

“I’m a very ambitious person and wanted more from life than just putting packages into lorries,” explained Alex. “I visited a local job fair on my day off from the warehouse, which, on reflection, was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Pitman Training had a stall there and, after approaching them, the team explained what they could do for me. However, I was keen to find out more, so I decided to visit the centre and get a taster of what Pitman had to offer first-hand.

“I was so impressed with the centre and the team that I decided to enrol on the Office Skills Diploma. After visiting the centre, I was so inspired by the people there and was made to feel that I could achieve my goals if I worked hard and focused on completing my Office Skills Diploma. Once I’d signed up for the course, I didn’t want to waste any time. I just wanted to get it done and start my new journey,” said Alex.

At Pitman Training, to ensure our students have the best chance of success, we provide access to flexible learning, allowing students to fit their training around their work and home lives. As well as this, we also provide students access to a learning coach for extra help and motivation if they need it. It does not matter if you choose to learn inside the centre or from the comfort of your home; your learning coach will be on hand to help you whenever you need it.

“Because of my busy work schedule, I spent a lot of time learning from home and fitting my studying in whenever I could. However, the best thing about Pitman was the support I received from the team. They constantly kept in touch with emails, which were always informative and helpful. They were so attentive and showed me that someone was there for me whenever I needed them, which I really appreciated. If I ever had a question, the Pitman team would always be there to answer.”

To support our learners in realising their full potential, we frequently run workshop sessions. These sessions typically focus on various subjects such as building a great CV, personal development, or coaching people on how to handle getting back into work and changing careers.

“Pitman went above and beyond in helping me find a new career. They helped me to put together my CV and gave me interview training in the centre to help me prepare myself. This training was fantastic and went a long way in helping me land my new job. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to get my new job with Hatfield Police Station if it wasn’t for all the support from Pitman Training.

“The thing I enjoyed most about studying with Pitman was the feeling of pride I got knowing I was bettering myself. Once I had completed my course, I got loads of interviews, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without the qualifications on paper that Pitman helped me to achieve.

“I would recommend that anyone looking to chase a new career or better themselves takes a Pitman Training course. The staff are so friendly and supportive, and the course will undoubtedly help you in later life.”

At Pitman, we use the highest-quality technology to provide our students with the education they deserve.
