Kesgrave High School Academy gains Academic Accreditation
Posted by APM on 23rd Oct 2012
APM are delighted to announce that Kesgrave High School Academy (KHSA) have recently gained APM Academic Accreditation for their course; An Introduction to Project Management for Secondary Schools a hands on approach. This course provides young adults with the opportunity to explore and understand project management principles and practice as an enrichment subject within their 6th Form studies.
Academic accreditation is a great achievement as it allows KHSA to demonstrate to their existing and potential students, that they are committed to the highest standards of project management professional development.
When asked why they wanted to gain APM Academic Accreditation, Dave Green of Kesgrave High School said: The main reason is to give the students a recognised qualification they can use to bolster their CVs when applying for university, jobs or apprenticeships post A-level. The accreditation process has also enabled me to get professional comments and suggestions to improve the course and align it with best practice as enshrined in the APM Body of Knowledge and so provide students with the best possible introduction to project management.
What does APM Accreditation mean to them? Dave explained: It enables KSHA to start to promoting our course and its content to other teachers and schools and with other channels such as STEMnet. The overall aim is to get project management more formally taught in secondary schools in the UK.
