Franchise Overview

Having franchised since 1992, Pitman Training offers a successful and mature operation which provides a genuine competitive advantage. A well-recognised name with both individuals and corporate audiences, including an extremely successful partnership with Amazon UK, Pitman is a trusted brand.

With Pitman Training Centres established, both within the UK and internationally for a Franchise Fee of £40k, the Group has seen sustained development of the network and continues to attract new, high-calibre franchisees. Cash generative from launch and with strong internal systems in place, franchisees possessing the right skills, drive and determination should expect to exceed their breakeven point within their first year. The Pitman Training franchise opportunity certainly lends itself to multi-centre ownership. In fact, exactly half of the current franchisees have pursued a multi-centre strategy; many owning 2 or 3 centres and some as many as 8 centres!

Franchise partners will build and grow their businesses, with the vast majority achieving impressive 6-figure revenues and a growing number now achieving 7 figure revenues. Remember, you are also building an asset as you develop your Pitman Training business. Many franchise partners have achieved great resale values upon exit, giving them an excellent return on their investment.


An initial 2-week training programme is provided. New franchise partners will spend a week at the head office facility to learn all aspects of the business and will then spend the following week in a Pitman Training Centre, working alongside Pitman staff and interacting with students! Essentially, learning on the job.

Pitman Training Group provides full centre, sales and marketing, supervisor and student support training and course awareness through a mixture of presentations, one to one training and webinars.

Daily Life of a franchisee

With this franchise, the owner will predominantly be office-based, running a busy training centre, and concentrating on the sales and marketing opportunities driving business growth. There will be some staff supervision responsibilities, or this can be delegated to a centre manager. The opportunity to build a team is there, and centre staff could range from a team of 2 to potentially 15+, depending on the centre growth.
