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.
Round up: organisations awarded APM Accreditation
Posted by APM on 16th Dec 2015
APM Accreditation is awarded to those companies who demonstrate a commitment to the FIVE Dimensions of Professionalism.
There are four types of accreditation: Corporate Accreditation that assesses an organisation’s professional development scheme; Training and Development Accreditation for training companies who have met a standard and are permitted to deliver APM project management qualifications; Academic Accreditation, which designed to help students and professionals choose the best academic education; and Professional Course Accreditation that helps learners choose the best course in support of their career.
Those organisations that have been awarded APM Accreditation recently include:
- Swansea University for their project management professional development programme.
- EE for their programme and project management incorporating the project and technology delivery teams.
Accredited Corporate organisations are able to attract and retain the best project management talent in the country. The assessment of an organisation’s professional development scheme gives stakeholders confidence of its dedication to developing project professionals.
