I have just completed the Secretarial Diploma with Pitman Training in Canterbury.  I had worked as a Primary School teacher for ten years and was eager to change career, but did not have the confidence or necessary qualifications and skills employers look for on a CV.  I had heard of Pitman Training courses and decided to do a Secretarial Diploma. I had no idea if I was making the right decision at the time. However, I realised very quickly it was the best decision I had ever made. I can’t thank Sally enough for her assistance on deciding on the most suitable diploma and course units to study. The combination of the distance learning courses and easy to follow workbooks were great to allow me to fit in my studying at any time of the day. I felt such a sense of achievement with each unit I completed and the new skills I had gained. I had no secretarial experience when I started training and only basic computer skills. I began attending interviews before I had finished the course, because I felt more confident and I no longer panicked when I saw a job advertisement requiring candidates to be competent users of Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook. Overall, I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Pitman. Sally the Centre Manager, is a thoroughly lovely person. She offered me great advice from the very beginning and was very supportive. She wants you to succeed. The lovely new centre in Beer Cart Lane is well-located and a peaceful place to study. Sally was always there to help in the centre or just an email or phone call away should I encounter any difficulties. I feel a real sense of achievement that I worked hard and gained Distinctions in all my units. I am really proud and happy that I can now say I have a Pitmans Secretarial diploma.

Legal Secretary Diploma I studied Conveyancing, Criminal Law and Wills and Probate for my chosen subjects. There was an Introduction to the Legal Secretary which was very informative and, the course included Effective Business Communication which I found very helpful and again this is a good one to be able to refer back to for ideas and information. The whole of the course was enjoyable and as I received my grades it made me more confident with the thought of applying for a job as a legal secretary, knowing that ‘I can actually do this’! Dawn the Centre Manager in Canterbury Pitman Training helped me with my curriculum vitae which has done wonders for me and, she was always there with support and encouragement, which is always good. I am very happy that I received an overall Distinction for my Legal Secretary Diploma! I was previously working as a café assistant, part time, while doing my diploma. I have been away from secretarial work for 10 years and wanted to return to this kind of work. I realised that the only way to get employers to notice me again was to retrain. A friend mentioned and recommended Pitman Training to me and I went to find out what it was all about. It is the best move I have ever made regarding qualifications. The courses are so easy to follow and are explained very well. I could go in to train when it suited me and in no time I had finished my course. I would recommend Pitman Training to anyone who is seeking new qualifications to help get a new job. I applied for a job at Furley Page solicitors as they were advertising for a legal secretary in conveyancing for their Whitstable office. This was to be my third time lucky interview! I am smiling like a Cheshire cat! At all of the interviews I was told how impressed they were with my recent qualifications and that my grades were impressive! I also still have interviews being offered to me, so it is a good feeling that my CV and Pitman Training qualifications were obviously that good! Adrienne Richards
