Project management apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are employer-designed programmes that deliver the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed in an occupation.

There are two apprenticeship standards for England that contain our APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) – the Level 4 Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship and the Level 6 Project Manager Integrated Degree Apprenticeship. Those completing the Level 6 programme also receive a BA/BSc Project Management degree.

If you are based in Scotland or Wales you will take the Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management. For more information on this apprenticeship, contact EAL.

If you are based in Northern Ireland, click here for more information on apprenticeships that relate to project management.

At the start of August the UK government launched a new online and phone support service for apprentices who have lost their jobs during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices (ReSSA) means apprentices can access local and national services that provide financial, legal, health and wellbeing support, and help them to find a new job. Apprentices can also search and apply for other available opportunities across the country.

Employers with apprenticeship opportunities, and who are willing to take on a redundant apprentice, are also being encouraged to sign up to the new service to advertise their vacancies.

Apprentices who are looking for new opportunities can then see what is on offer and get support to apply.

You can find full details of the scheme here.
