Testimonials

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

Microsoft Office Skills Diploma I had used various computer programmes over the years but never in any depth or with great confidence. When I moved into a new area and needed to apply for a new job, I picked Pitman Training because of the friendly atmosphere and the style of training that I could fit around my own life. It seemed the perfect time to improve my IT skills and gain a qualification to add to my CV, which the Centre Manager also helped me with. I completed the diploma and the courses suited my individual needs. The Pitman Training course teaching audio and workbook was very straight forward and divided into lessons, which I could study at my own pace and on days and times that suited my life. The content was sometimes challenging for me but with help, support and being encouraged to work through and find solutions is a great confidence boost! I really enjoyed and miss going into the Canterbury centre and everyone there. However, I have now gained all the certificates and also a Pitman Training Diploma and gained the Distinction, which I am thrilled with and which I know is well recognised! I would fully recommend this course and qualification. Helen McLaughlin

Pitman Training Microsoft Diploma I originally booked Pitman Training for my courses as the name is so well recognised by employers, also they have been around nearly 200 years and the training method is tried and tested. I really liked the fact that I could fit the training in around my own life without the possibility of getting behind, or having to keep up with other learners. I had a tutor via headphones and a very comprehensive work book for each individual course. You can work through the course very easily as it is so easy to follow being step by step, also there was a training supervisor always on hand whenever I needed help to ensure that you understand, which is great! I have also completed some courses within the training centre, as well as completed some at home via the Pitman distance learning system, which is simple to follow as it works exactly the same way as if I was going in the centre, however when I was really busy in my life, I could then learn at the evenings and at weekends. I have learnt lots and lots of computer skills including Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Outlook. There is so much within each package and I have learnt everything to an intermediate standard which I have seen help lots of people get jobs as it is the standard of training and the certificates and diploma that make the CV stand out from the crowd. I have found the Pitman Training Microsoft Diploma 2010 courses both enjoyable and easy to follow, considering how daunting it was for me at first. However, Dawn, the Centre Manager constantly believed in me and gave me the confidence to believe in myself and has consistently motivated me not to give up. It has all really been worth it. The style of training is brilliant and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I am really glad I followed it through and, this is a new beginning for me. Cemile Erin - Canterbury

I have found the Pitman Training Microsoft Office ‘Access’ course in depth and extremely useful. The system of learning is excellent! You learn at your own pace, at times to suit you in a quiet but supportive environment. The course is easy to follow and you are taken through step by step via tape and headphones with an exercise book to guide you, with scope to repeat and review as necessary, you also keep the work book for future reference. This concludes with a test at the end of the module to crystalise your learning. I felt a great deal of satisfaction achieving a Distinction on my certificate. For those seeking to update their office skills, or learn new ones I have pleasure in recommending the Pitman Courses and the warm, comfortable and welcoming Training Centre at Canterbury as a place of study!

Accounting Technician Diploma My name is Tracy Gostling and I decided to do the Pitman Accounting Technician Diploma as I had always wanted to do something to do with Accounting but had never had the opportunity to learn. I found out about Pitman Training and decided to come in to the Canterbury branch and have a chat about my options. Dawn the Centre manager at Canterbury was very helpful and went through all the options with me, also answered all my questions and so I decided to take on the Accounting Technician Diploma. I have really enjoyed learning all of my new skills and have found the course both fun and interesting. Having never done any accounting learning before, I found that the course books are really helpful and take you through it all step by step and if you are not sure on something you can go back and do it again to practise. I have done some of the course at the centre and I have also completed some of the courses via distance learning at home, as it fitted around my work and home life doing it that way. In both centre and distance learning Dawn has been there throughout to give any help needed, you gain so much out of doing the courses, they build your skills and confidence and you gain recognised certificates and the overall diploma, which I gained top marks in with a distinction. I would recommend anyone to take on a Pitman Training course as it is really worth it! Tracy Gostling

I found it very hard to get a job after I graduated from University because I did not have work experience and I decided that a professional training course would be very helpful. I enrolled on the Executive PA Plus Diploma with Pitman Training in Canterbury, managing to update my existing skills and learn so many new ones, from touch-typing, audio-typing to book-keeping, Sage, Microsoft Office packages to expert level and more, skills that employers are really looking for in all the job adverts. I started applying for jobs while I was still undertaking my course and was invited to many interviews, thanks to the help I received from Dawn at Pitman Training, helping me create a CV that would be looked at well from an employers point of view, also the reference Dawn gave me also helped me being offered a great job. I decided to accept the offer from a Chartered Accountants Firm for the Secretary and Accounts Assistant position. They were very impressed with my qualifications and appreciated Pitman Training name on my CV as it is so well recognised. I know that I obtained the job that I have today thanks to Pitman Training qualifications. I really enjoyed doing this Diploma and I feel that I progressed so much in the last year, all thanks to the helpful staff, especially Dawn for all her help and encouragement! I can safely say it has made a positive difference to my future, I would highly recommend Pitman Training Canterbury to anyone thinking of taking this type of course! Call now on 01227 761002.

I had previously worked as a yard manager running a breeding yard for Spanish horses, but decided I wanted a bit more from life. I have always wanted to work in London and a high flying PA would be the perfect job for me! I heard about Pitman Training from my mum as she studied a management course there 25years ago. I decided on the Executive PA Plus Diploma as it offered all possible angles that I may cover, being a successful PA. From manual and computerised book-keeping, to a full set of up-to-date Microsoft skills and more specialised such as short hand and audio typing. I felt it was more than worth the cost of the course, and signed on the dotted line! I applied for a new job while I was still undertaking my course and after an interview, was offered the job of PA to the Creative Director of a local wholesale company. They were extremely impressed with my qualifications and could instantly recognise the high level of proficiency that is acquired with a Pitman Training qualification. I have now finished off the last modules of my Executive PA Plus Diploma. While I'm not in London yet, I know that with my Pitman Training qualifications I will have no problem finding the job I want with the salary I want to match. I am thoroughly enjoying my new job and know that I would not be where I am today without my Pitman Training qualifications and all the help of the extraordinary staff at the Pitman Training Centre, especially Dawn! Thank you so much and keep up the good work! Suzanna Hewitt
