What others are saying about secretarial

Incredibly supportive and helpful

Where: Pitman Training (Wembley)

What: Secretarial Diploma - Pitman Training/ MOS/ ECDL/ BCS Typaz Qualifications

by Annabelle - January 2015

I have just completed 2 diplomas at the above training centre. I did the Secretarial Diploma and also the Medical Secretarial Diploma. I have not been working or studying for more than 19 years as I have been bringing up my family, so as you may imagine it was quite a shock for me going back to studying. The Pitman staff in Wembley have been incredibly supportive and helpful. I found the courses quite challenging at times, but there was always someone there to help me and put me back on track. Jiten was particularly helpful and patient with me! I am now looking for a part-time position. The training centre has been very supportive. They have also helped me with my CV and managed to find me some work experience. I would thoroughly recommend this friendly training centre to my friends and family. Once again many help for all your support. Best Wishes
