Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship Level 4

Duration: 15-18 months

This 18 month high quality programme (and 15 month accelerated option) is appropriate for junior project professionals who need a high-quality structured training programme to achieve the knowledge, behaviours and skills displayed by occupationally competent project managers. Apprentices will undertake an APM Project Management Qualification as part of the apprenticeship.

The programme comprises monthly full day digitally-led seminars with a project management expert. Tuition is supplemented with regular one to one coaching and access to high quality online and offline resources to put apprentices in a great position to achieve their apprenticeship and the industry-standard APM qualification.

Apprentices develop skills in governance, managing stakeholders, conflict, budgets and cost control, scope, scheduling, risk and issues, contracts and procurement, quality and resources, and business case development. They will develop behaviours including driving for results, collaboration, leadership, communications, integrity, ethics, compliance and professionalism.

Upon commencement, apprentices may become student members of the Association for Project Management (APM) as the first step of professional membership. They will be eligible for progression to associate membership upon successful completion of the apprenticeship. Full membership can be attained through further experience and professional development.
