Multiple income

Empower people to change their future

Unique, self-paced flexible study system

Pitman Training Franchise

Serve B2B and B2C markets with Pitman Training courses, and also use your training centre for hosting external exams (majority via PTG)

Enjoy the reward of completely changing the trajectory of people’s lives, enabling them
to achieve
their goals

You won’t need teaching staff, students study through the ‘Pitman Campus’, your own virtual learning portal either in your centre or offsite

What does success look like?

It’s going to be hard work initially, as starting any successful small business is! However, once established your training centre should generate circa £250K - £350K* per annum with a gross profit of circa 75-80%.

Franchisee earnings at this stage are typically between £60K - £90K+*, but it really depends on each centre owner’s approach and time spent working in their business. Some owners invest in more centres and a management team.

“Before Pitman I worked mainly in financial services. I am now in control of my own
destiny. I love what
I do and have expanded
to 3 locations.”

“I think people buy from people that they like and people that they trust.
So, if you know your product and enjoy speaking to people then you will do really well.”

“With every training course we sell we are looking at the bigger picture of that person’s life and we work with them to help them
achieve their goals.”

“I trained with Pitman, then became a centre manager before going on to invest and buy the Dover Centre. If you are thinking of investing, just do it.”

 Who will be my customers?

Pitman Training Franchise

With our rapidly evolving world, self-development and training is becoming more and more essential.

Your customers are often looking to gain a promotion or get back to work and could be self-funded, pay monthly (Pitman Training provides access to external providers of student finance), or come via their business or a corporate account.

However they arrive to you, Pitman Training's flexible approach enables them to learn from home or study at your centre using a combination of market-leading audio guides, workbooks and live software.

This ever-evolving suite of training materials and cutting-edge systems is part of your franchise package.

How much do I need to invest?

To start your training business requires a total investment of circa £60K - £100K depending on location/premises. High street lenders will offer up to 70% of this figure, subject to status. This also includes the franchise fee which is between £27.5K - £35K + VAT, depending on territory size.

The ongoing costs of owning your business within the Pitman Training network include access to the CRM and virtual learning portal, monthly management service fee, the national marketing fund, plus a contribution towards the cost for each lead you receive from head office.

Pitman Training will detail exactly what you get in return for your payments – the support structure having evolved over many years to help ensure centre owners have the highest chance of sustained success.
