The Publishing Training Centre is a network of over 50 publishing and training professionals focused solely on delivering training courses for the publishing industry and developing publishing skills.

As an independent charitable foundation The Publishing Training Centre (PTC) was established to provide cost-effective and high-quality training for publishers in the UK and overseas. The PTC's first measure of success is how many people pass through its doors to train on courses that have to meet exacting standards. 

The PTC is a signatory of the Publishing Equalities Charter and now invites all delegates on its course to complete a diversity data questionnaire to help EQUIP understand the employee profile of those working in the publishing industry and to promote equality across UK publishing, bookselling and agenting.

PTC courses provide specific learning outcomes that are designed to make an immediate, positive difference back at the office. All PTC tutors are practitioners first and foremost, which means that they bring their real-world experience with them to the courses they teach, enriching the experience for students and making the courses more practical.

PTC's work is overseen by a dedicated Board of Trustees, who have a broad range of experience and expertise in the publishing industry. PTC began life as the training division of the Publishers Association and became independent in the 1970s under the auspices of The Unwin Trust. It originally traded as Book House Training Centre until it transformed into The Publishing Training Centre Foundation in the 1990s. In 2016 the PTC registered with The Living Wage Foundation to be recognised as a Living Wage employer.
