Empower people to change their future

Empower people

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

Unique, self-paced flexible study system

Flexible

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.

Who will be my customers?

Customers 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 (we provide access to external providers of student finance), or come via their business or a corporate account.

However they arrive to you, our 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.
