Who is this programme for?
It’s for you if you are looking for a job and need practical skills on your CV or if you need practical skills for your job. It’s also a very good way to practise your English by using it to study a different subject.
How does it work?
You study English in the morning at LTC. In the afternoon, you go to Pitman Training.
Pitman use individualised learning where you study at your own pace on a PC with a course advisor there to help you. There will normally be other students at Pitman Training, most of them British people.
We recommend you study about 15 hours per week. Pitman Training are open in the afternoons, some evenings and for a few hours on Saturdays.
You can find Pitman Training near all our schools:
- In London about 15 minutes by tube (approx £25 per week)
- In Brighton 15 minutes by bus (approx £20 per week)
- In Eastbourne 10 minutes on foot.
What level do I have to be?
Your English must be intermediate (B1) or higher. You can be a beginner in the Pitman course subject (apart from those which are at “Level 2” or “Expert” level).
What about visas?
If you need a visa to study in Britain, you get your visa for your English language course. The Pitman course is “supplementary” and doesn’t affect your visa. However, you must study English at LTC for the duration of your Pitman course.
Do I have to take an exam?
Yes. You have to pass a test at the end of every module on your Pitman course.
What if I don’t have time to finish my Pitman course while I am in England.
You can complete your Pitman course online when you get home.
What courses are available?
A Business Skills Diploma course is a longer course that consists of several different modules. You can also choose just one or a few modules for a Business Skills Certificate.
