Who Is This Programme For?

If you manage projects as part of your role but have had no formal training, then this programme is the perfect fit for you.

You’ll learn how to set up, run and manage successful projects and at the same time you’ll also receive the Project Management Qualification (PMQ) from the Association of Project Management.

Our programmes are completely flexible in terms of delivery with minimum numbers of 1!

We can run this as an internal in-house training programme for a cohort or we can use our eco-delivery method all through virtual training and online coaching enabling us to run the programme on a personalised, individual basis.

What Will You Learn?

This programme is ideal for those employees who have had little project management in the past 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.

The programme will cover all the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours that are required to be a successful project manager.

How Will You Learn?

This is a 18-month programme and with our flexible delivery model, the choice is yours on how you’d like to learn.

If you have several managers within your organisation that have the same needs then we can run this programme as a cohort with a mixture of face to face, virtual and/or blended sessions – we’ll work with you to determine the right mix. Conversely, we can run this as an individual programme.

Our eco-delivery model is a mixture of regular one-to-one virtual training and online coaching sessions removing the need for learners to leave the office or their home.
