Project manager

“Project management apprentices learn to deliver projects and take on responsibility for end-to-end delivery”

As a project management apprentice, you’ll develop unique knowledge, skills and leadership to manage the social, legal and environmental implications of your project. In addition, you’ll manage a variety of interfaces with the organisational entities that are involved in the project, reporting to the project sponsor and working within the requirements of the programme and portfolio, as appropriate. You’ll train in governance and project management methods and techniques, which you’ll use to initiate and execute complex projects, and develop into an effective leader of change, who is able to guide a group of direct, sub-contract, or temporarily aligned resources into a coherent team that delivers on the project’s objectives. You’ll eventually attain management responsibilities, including resource budget planning, and may also hold people development accountabilities at some point. Upon completion of this apprenticeship, you’ll achieve either a BA or BSc in project management.
