Course description

On this apprenticeship, you will develop all the knowledge, skills and behaviours that effective project managers should have, at the same time as gaining a recognised university degree.

You will develop knowledge and skills in the following areas:

You will also develop behaviours such as leadership, collaboration, innovation, ethics and professionalism, and inclusivity.

The programme can also be tailored to specific industry sectors, if the demand is there. However, 80% of the content is on-the-job elements and work-related learning tasks, so it will be very closely linked to your role.

Structure, certificates and assessment

This apprenticeship runs over a minimum of four years. As well as your on-the-job learning, you will be studying for a degree.

This academic study will be through 'blended learning' - a combination of face-to-face and online teaching. Face-to-face sessions are delivered in blocks and online learning can include group webinars, independent activities or reading for half a day per week between the block study sessions.

You will be assessed on projects you complete for your employer, which must have real impact (for you and for your workplace). Your employer will help us design these assessments. 

Your employer will be able to track your progress through an online portal.
