Higher Apprenticeship - Project Management Level 4


Please contact us for further information about applying for this course.

Course Description

The Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management provides progression routes for those wishing to enter the project management profession or further their career in other disciplines using project management skills. As such, it provides a clear opportunity to increase competency and fill identified skill gaps. Skills gaps identified in the profession include stakeholder management skills, dealing with complexity, communication skills and technical competences such as project scheduling, risk management, earned value, planning and estimating.

Project management is growing as a career of first choice. Traditionally, a significant number of people move into managing projects after several years’ work in different sectors and functions. The perception that project management is a mid-career choice means that access to talented and competent young project professionals remains limited.

Many control functions within major projects can provide opportunities for younger professionals that can be developed into more senior project roles over time. The availability of Higher Apprenticeships will formally recognise the value of this, laying firm foundations for the next generation of competent project management professionals.
