Andre Bedlow runs his Pitman Training business in Reading

Andre Bedlow runs his Pitman Training franchise in Reading and tells us that Pitman Training offers a strong, recognisable brand with extensive support when you need it:

Pitman Training - Andre Bedlow"I chose to invest in a vocational training Franchise with Pitman Training as they are a strong, recognisable brand with an in-depth range of practical training products, relevant across a wide range of career sectors and industries. I was assigned a Franchise Development Manager who has provided advice and guidance both during the opening process as well as ongoing, which as a Franchisee has helped to build my knowledge of Pitman Training. With high quality training products, coupled with the accreditation of independent awarding bodies, including City and Guilds and AAT (The Association of Accounting Technicians), students are keen to study at my centre in Reading.

If you are looking to benefit from a Franchise that allows you to make a positive difference to your local community by facilitating others to better themselves in their career, a Pitman Training Franchise could be just what you are looking for. With both remote and face-to-face support available to all Franchisees in their Franchisee network of approximately 100 centres, you are always safe in the knowledge that although you are running your own business, should you require any assistance at any point, there is always someone with extensive experience there to help."

What Our Franchisees Say

“Joining Pitman was the perfect opportunity for me to help improve people’s career prospects, gain promotions or help them get back into work. One thing I’ve found about being a franchise partner with Pitman is that you’re in business for yourself but not by yourself. There’s a level of comfort that you get because other people are involved in the same project, it’s a real team effort.Chris Wyle, multi-unit franchise partner
