Here is the story of Jane, one of our students who earned her Medical Secretary Diploma.


Long hours on her poor tired feet were the motivation for High Holborn student Jane Dredge to change career!

Thirty plus years as a hospital physiotherapist convinced Jane there must be a less exhausting way of making a living, which is why she decided to study to be a medical secretary at Pitman Training London (High Holborn).

Jane didn't want to throw away her medical experience so she chose to study for our
Medical Secretary Diploma.

"I wanted an exciting career where I could put my medical knowledge to good use without working all day on my feet," confirms Jane.

With almost zero knowledge of computers and how to use them, Jane initially enrolled

for our ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) course, where she learned how to use Microsoft's popular word processing, spreadsheet and database packages.

"The programs are so clever, especially Excel and I find self-directed learning very enjoyable," adds Jane.

Although she admits that the ECDL course seemed totally foreign at first, she soon picked it up and passed her exams.

Her confidence high, Jane embarked on her medical secretary diploma course, working hard to pass all the in-depth modules, including medical terminology, letter styles for GP's, hospitals and consultants and courses in Word and Excel.

Today, Jane has earned her Medical Secretary Diploma and has found an absorbing job back in the medical world.

We wish her well and we're keen to see her prove the truth of our new slogan:

"Learn more, earn more!"

I Really Admire Jane Dredge, By Principal Shilpa Wymer.

Work in medicine

From the minute I met her, I liked Jane's atitude.

She was one of those rare people who had come to terms with the fact that her former career, as a physiotherapist, had become too much for her, physically.

She needed an office job!

At the same time, she didn't want to throw away years of training, so choosing to be a medical secretary was an obvious choice.

I was pleased when she selected us for her course as I knew she would be a star pupil and it was no surprise when she walked straight into a great job in a hospital.
