Programme scope

Our range of courses spans the project management process comprehensively from initial sponsorship, through planning, budgeting, risk management, routine metrics/reporting, issues/decision-making, to closeout. It also explains the critical leadership and team skills, especially relevant in our sector, particular in engaging matrix teams without direct authority and resolving conflict.

Learning methods

The topics are introduced by interactive eLearning modules, with clear explanations of project techniques, using videos and animations. Also where relevant, assessment questionnaires will give useful feedback and guidance. Deeper exploration is provided by live workshops (provided as online sessions), working with expert trainers, using case studies and opportunities to share participants’ own challenges.

Help with qualifications

Knowledge gained during the programme will help you with studies for entry level qualifications such as the Association of Project Management (APM) Fundamentals examination and the Project Management Institute (PMI) entry-level exams.
