This apprenticeship combines online learning, classroom training and on-the-job experience to equip you with essential project management skills.

The modules that you'll complete in college or online are:

  • Principles of Project Management
  • Concept & Business Case
  • Project Finances
  • Project Planning
  • Risk Management
  • Project Monitoring & Quality
  • Management & Leadership

You'll also learn about Agile and Waterfall methodologies and managing communications with stakeholders.

Your assessment will also require you to present a work-based portfolio showing how the knowledge you've acquired from the modules has been put into practice in the workplace. Your end-point assessment will take place in the final few months of the programme.

To join the programme you'll need 5 GCSEs (including English & Maths) at grade 4 (C) or above.

Existing Project Management qualifications may also be accepted.

If you haven't got Level 2 English & Maths you'll need to study Functional Skills alongside your apprenticeship.

On completing the programme you'll be ready to become a skilled Project Assistant, Project Manager or Project Supervisor.

Complete your apprenticeship and you'll be eligible to become a Student Member of the Association for Project Management (APM).

This is the first step towards Professional Membership.
