Who is it for?
The Associate Project Manager apprenticeship is ideal for individuals who are new to, or would like to improve upon, their skills and behaviours within the field of Project Management. Upon completion, project managers will know what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved, how long it will take and how much it will cost. Associate project managers will have good planning, organisation, leadership, management and communication skills. They will utilise resources to work together in a motivated and integrated team, with clearly defined reporting lines, roles, responsibilities and authorities. With a bespoke programme design, this qualification is both for those that are new to Project Management, or are experienced leaders.
How is the Training Delivered and what can you expect?
Larger cohorts can have training delivered in-house, at a convenient time. For smaller cohorts, training will be delivered at one of 19 study centres throughout the UK. These study centres deliver classes at flexible times outside of work hours therefore not impacting on the day to day business. All apprentices will have access to a virtual learning environment www.oxcomlearning.com for extra reading, study and communication.
The apprenticeship will take approximately 18-24 months to complete during which time the apprentice will gather evidence that apprenticeship outcomes have been met. During this time, the apprentice will have regular meetings (every 6-8 weeks) with their mentor / assessor to check progress.
Embedded within the Associate Project Manager apprenticeship is the Association for Project Management Project Management Qualification (PMQ). As an accredited training provider, the college have worked closely with APM to deliver this professional qualification for a number of years. With this experience, trainers are able to offer a tailored programme to your organisation.
For those who may not possess such experience, the Oxford College of Leadership and Management will also provide access to a precursor course; the Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ), to prepare individuals for the full apprenticeship programme.
What will be covered?
As part of the apprenticeship, learners will be supported by the attainment of the Project Management Qualification (PMQ) from the Association of Project Management (APM).
