Crewe & Nantwich Training provider on a mission to improve careers of locals
In support of Adult Learners’ Week 13th – 19th June, the staff at Crewe & Nantwich Pitman Training Centre on Hospital Street in Nantwich are opening their doors to offer free advice and guidance to anyone interested in developing their skills, getting a promotion, planning the next steps in their career or looking for a new job this year, and join in with the celebration of lifelong learning.
With free tasters of a range of Pitman Training courses, 1-2-1 advice consultations on career planning, creating 5 year tailored career plans, Career MOT testing, CV writing workshops and recruitment support and advice on offer throughout the week, Manager, Allan Virr, is looking forward to meeting local people who are keen to keep pushing their own boundaries.
He said: “We pride ourselves on being advocates of lifelong learning, and genuinely believe in the opportunities it brings to change and transform lives. We ran our open week last year during Adult Learners Week and it was a huge success. We saw and inspired hundreds of people from all over the region, of all ages, in many different situations, and helped them discover how lifelong learning can help change lives.
Many of our students keep in touch and we’re delighted to hear how they’ve had success with new jobs, promotions and boosting their salaries, as a result of vocational training and taking on new skills. Our sessions are very informal and our friendly team has years of experience to share, so people can just come and have a chat.”

Claire Lister, MD of Pitman Training Group is a huge advocate of lifelong learning, and having headed up Pitman for 17 years and now developing the International franchise expansion, she regularly undertakes CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
She said: “It’s essential, whatever your position, to continue to develop your skills. Whether you’re looking to move on, or keep progressing in your existing role, standing still is not an option these days. The corporate world moves so quickly as technology continues to evolve; working practices constantly progress, and new ways of becoming more efficient are always just around the corner. I love to learn new things and feel that this drive is key to success. I’d always encourage others to seek out new ways of improving their skills and to keep topping up their knowledge - it’s not just good for the career, it’s good for the soul!’
Adult Learners’ Week is an opportunity for individuals and organisations to celebrate the benefits of lifelong learning. Pitman Training has been synonymous with office based training since Sir Isaac Pitman invented shorthand in 1837, and the company now helps thousands of students each year progress their careers through tailor-made study programmes and Diplomas which are CPD accredited. One to one support is available at over 100 local centres, as well as via online courses, and short seminars to help top up skills. For more information see www.pitman-training.com
