The aim of this part time, evening course, is to expose learners to the key terminology, procedures and techniques in the Project management field. This will include planning and scheduling, quality management and decision making.

You'll start with an introduction to the project management organisational structure and the project business case. You'll learn how to communicate effectively and manage risk. Then, you'll begin to develop your skills estimating cost and managing change.

The only qualifications we ask you to have when enrolling on this course are Literacy and Numeracy at an Entry Level 2 or above. There will also be an initial assessment.

Beyond that, all you need is a passion for planning, organisation and leadership.

The course is assessed through a variety of in-class assessments and practical activities.

Once you've completed this introductory course, you may want to undertake a more specific Project Management qualification such as PRINCE2 to develop your skills even further.

Each qualification you achieve will take you closer to your ideal job in the business world, giving you all the skills you need to have a successful career. You could find yourself in a huge number of different roles in this sector, including being a manager in customer services, HR, administration, retail, finance or even marketing!
