A Wetherby-based training provider has taken a turn for the tropical, with the launch of a franchise in the Cayman Islands.

Pitman Training’s new Cayman Island centre is its first franchise to be launched in the Caribbean, and is intended to help deliver the work-ready skills that businesses are now demanding in the Caribbean.

Press activity surrounding the new centre’s launch – including radio interviews and an interview on Cayman Islands’ TV breakfast show – led to three people signing up to a course, and the purchase of a diploma, within days of opening – a record number for a new centre.

Sue Buckeridge, director of Pitman Training in the Cayman Islands, said: “Pitman Training has a very strong brand history, which has also evolved to fit the skills that businesses today are demanding.

“Businesses the world over are now demanding different skills from those they needed 10 years ago, and it’s great to see that Pitman Training are continuing to evolve with businesses, and ensure the training they offer is still relevant, to meet these demands.”
