David Cameron visits Jaguar Land RoverAPM, in conjunction with the Council for Administration (CfA), are investigating the need to develop Higher Apprenticeships in project management. Apprenticeships are considered a key pillar of the coalition Government's skills strategy, with increased funding available to further increase the number of learners completing apprenticeships.

Higher Apprenticeships (at levels 4 and 5) have been heavily promoted by the Government in the past 12 months, with significant resource going into the development of several new Higher Apprenticeships and funding promised for an additional 10,000 places.

It is crucial that we build up the skills that our businesses need and that will fuel long-term growth, said British Prime Minister, David Cameron (pictured left). That is why, despite some difficult decisions on spending, we are increasing the number of apprenticeships to record levels.

"We are investing in apprenticeships because we know they work, he added. They are good for people who want to get ahead, good for business and good for the country.

Apprenticeships aim to provide apprentices with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to be considered competent in a specific job role and can be relevant to those who are new to the workforce as well as those who have been in the workforce for a number of years.

Agility to succeed

4 October 2016

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.

You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
