Associate Project Manager Level 4 Apprenticeship

Management training courses designed around your EXACT REQUIREMENTS
and the business outcomes that you want to achieve

Associate Project Manager
Level 4 Apprenticeship

Idea for staff who need to manage their projects more effectively, within budget and on time.
 

Select from Workshops, Virtual, Coaching or Self-Study

Do you have people within your organisation who could do with some formal project management training?

Maybe they manage projects as part of their role but have had no formal training?

Or they might be managers who are not project managers as such, but who need to set up, manage and run successful projects as part of what they do.

Either way, if the answer is yes then the Associate Project Manager programme will be a perfect solution for them.

Our programmes are not chalk and talk! We can customise the style, the format and the delivery of the programme to suit your organisation – it will be a complete bespoke solution so your learners and organisation achieve real, tangible benefits from it.

Some of our employers prefer face to face workshops, others prefer virtual sessions and some prefer the programme to be delivered as action learning sets. You can combine all three or add virtual coaching, self-study and online learning into the mix!

We’ll work with you to determine what is best for you.

This programme is fully customisable and the added bonus of studying is that learners will also take The Project Management Qualification (PMQ) from the Association of Project Management.

CUSTOMISED & UNIQUE

Developing Your Programme

Key to the success of your apprenticeship programme will be for our team to work in partnership with you to develop your programme so that it reflects your mission, values and behaviours, harnesses core working practices, terminology and that it is relevant to each and every learner and their role.

Working in partnership with our curriculum experts we will develop a programme that is unique to your organisation and your learners.

The programme will be designed around your exact requirements to ensure that you receive real, tangible outcomes that can be evidenced in the workplace – whether that’s in a physical office or if your learners work from home.

Below is some further information about the Associate Project Manager Level 4 programme.

BLENDED APPROACH

Programme Structure

This programme has been designed in a way that will maximise the performance of each learner. Learning the theory of a topic is great but it’s what the learner does to embed the learning and actually use it, that matters most.

All learning is reinforced with ongoing coaching, online resources and off-the-job activity to bring it all to life.

Each part of the programme supports the learner to apply their knowledge and skills via INTENT – IMPLEMENT – IMPACT.
