Train an apprentice

The Trailblazer  employer development group, led by Sellafield Ltd, has developed an Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship Standard at level 4 and a Project Manager Degree Standard at level 6 is currently under development, to address skill demands in this area.

  • The Associate Project Manager and the Project Manager Standards both include on-programme assessment for the IPMA level D which in England is the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ).
  • In order to provide training for the PMQ, training providers will need to be accredited by APM. If you are interested in seeking APM accreditation please contact the team.
  • In order to offer apprenticeships Employers and Apprenticeship training providers will also usually need to be registered on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP)
  • The Assessment plan for the assessment of the Associate Project Manager Standard is detailed here.
  • The Associate Project Manager Standard is assessed by an end point assessment; Assessment organisations registered for End-Point Assessment for the Associate Project Manager Standard can be found on the Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations (RoEPAO).
  • The Assessment plan for the assessment of the Project Manager Degree Standard is detailed here.
