Become an apprentice

Have you organised an event, a trip or maybe been involved with making a family wedding happen? If the answer is yes, you have used project management skills.

There are two apprenticeships relating to project management. 

Both apprenticeships contain an end-point assessment, which tests the knowledge, skills and behaviours you have learned on the programme. This assessment is a presentation and professional discussion based on project management experience. 

Note: Organisations who recruit for Apprenticeship vacancies will have their own additional requirements.
