APM has collaborated with City A.M. on their first special report on project management that will be published in the London business newspaper on Wednesday 23rd October*.
Reaching 275,000 readers throughout London and the Home Counties the report will feature current trends in project management with the aim of highlighting the importance of having well trained and qualified project managers.

The report will go on to explain how APM have created a new pathway into the profession with the recent launch of the Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management. The scheme, co-created with Skills CFA, will embed vital project skills in organisations throughout England and Wales therefore raising the bar of project management professionalism.
The industrys most prominent thought leaders will feature within the report, with APM president Tom Taylor contributing to an expert panel. The report is specifically designed to engage key business decision makers with the importance of project managers, and the tools and training they require to deliver on time and on budget.
It follows on from APM featuring in two other special reports that were published in the national press. The Times published a report in June where APM chairman Mike Nichols explained the idea behind the associations ambitious vision. Before that, APM supported the Daily Telegraphs special project management edition of The Business Reporter that came out in April.

Back when I was a student apprenticeships were viewed as the "non-academic" option but times have changed and they can now lead to degree-level qualifications and higher accreditation, eventually, such as chartered status.
