This month, Pitman Training – the UK and Ireland’s best-established training provider – is celebrating being named the UK’s top adult education franchise opportunity. From hundreds of entries across every sector, Pitman was ranked 46th overall in the prestigious Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) – a title it will hold for the duration of 2023.
“We feel that Pitman Training has truly earned its place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list,” said Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise. “This definitive Top 100 ranking exemplifies the very best of franchisors in the UK. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive, and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges.”
“The EF100 was established in 2017 in association with HSBC and is essentially the franchising list to watch. During judging, brands were examined on a range of criteria, from their financial performance and heritage to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation, as well as how they continue to grow their brand during the current financial crisis. Securing a place in the top 100 is a testament to all that Pitman Training has achieved over the past year,” added Anita Roberts, Franchise Director at HSBC UK.
“It is an honour to be named as the UK’s top adult education franchise,” said Mike Broad, Pitman Training’s Head of Franchise Support. “Over the past 12 months our head office team has done a monumental amount of work to ensure our franchise partners are in the best possible position to deliver an exceptional service. For example, we’ve focused on adding more value for our students by hosting graduation ceremonies and introducing a graduate site to showcase students’ achievements and connect them with local employers. We have also provided constant support to the NHS with our world-renowned medical courses, such as the Medical Admin Diploma, and trained hundreds of thousands of students in the UK and literally changed lives. I’m so proud to be a part of this great franchise.”
The team at Pitman is proud to not only provide exemplary services for its clients but now be named as a fantastic business opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs too.
