Pitman Training Celebrates Further International Expansion As New Franchise Partner Joins In Gibraltar

09 November 2015

The UK’s leading franchised training provider, Pitman Training Group, is thrilled to announce the continued expansion of their franchisee network, as the Superbrand™ opened the doors to its new training centre in Gibraltar, November 2nd

Following the success of recent international expansions, the respected British business is excited to be rolling out its unique model of computer-based, experiential learning in the British Overseas Territory, after an experienced and recognised training provider, already firmly established in the area has joined the franchise network.

One of the leading corporate training companies in Gibraltar, P & B Training is expanding its current offering with the addition of a Pitman Training Centre offering its courses and diplomas covering Personal Development, Customer Services, Financial Services, Management Development, Social Media, Project Management and a variety of Spanish Language Courses.

The new Pitman Training Centre is located within P & B Training’s existing premises. Those involved in the new franchised centre include Peter Bosbury and Brenda Cuby, both Partners of P & B Training, Derek Williams, Management Development Practitioner at P & B Training, and Fiorina Fortunato of Fortunato Solutions, who recently partnered with P & B Training. Each bring with them a wealth of experience and are highly respected trainers in their own specialist areas, formed from extensive involvement with a variety of prestigious international and UK companies.

Education in Gibraltar largely follows the English model and Pitman Training Group is delighted to have the chance to support the Gibraltar community with their respected vocational training solutions for office based staff in the Iberian Peninsula.

Wetherby based, Pitman Training Group M.D, Claire Lister said: We’re very excited to announce the recent launch of a Pitman Centre in Gibraltar. This is an incredibly interesting market – only 3sq miles geographically, and with a population of only 30,000 residents, but with a market worth in excess of £1 billion.  Main markets come from tourism, online gaming businesses, and the financial services sector.

The market is therefore vibrant and there are many opportunities for training and development both for the resident population but also for the individuals who come across the border from Spain each day to work. Our new partners have an excellent range of business and training skills, and are already well established in the region.  We are confident that they will make a tremendous success of the business, and will provide excellent support to private and corporate clients alike.”

Pitman Training Group has been heavily focused on global expansion, with recent agreements signed in Nigeria, Zimbabwe and the Cayman Islands. As well as opportunities worldwide, there are many exciting franchise opportunities available in several areas throughout the UK, including Chester, Sheffield & Leicester.

Pitman Training has recently been announced as a finalist in the ‘Bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year Awards 2015’ in the ‘Award for Innovation’ category, which pays testament to its constant strive for innovation, and its passion to remain forward thinking.
