Managing project work and teams for businesses and other organisations.
Projects can be defined and delivered within different contexts, across diverse industry sectors. They can be large or small. Every project needs to be managed to ensure its success. An associate project manager knows what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved, how long it will take and how much it will cost, and works with the project team to achieve the required outcomes. Associate project managers need good planning, organisation, leadership, management and communication skills. An associate project manager utilises resources with suitable skills, qualifications, experience and knowledge to work together in a motivated and integrated team, with clearly defined reporting lines, roles, responsibilities and authorities.
Individual employers will set their own entry requirements for their apprentices. Typically, candidates will have achieved a grade C or above in at least 5 GCSEs including English and Mathematics, and hold a minimum of 48 UCAS points, or equivalent.
Level 2 English and Mathematics qualifications to be achieved before entry or during the apprenticeship, prior to the end-point assessment

The portfolio of evidence is a substantial written submission completed by the apprentice. It is an opportunity for the apprentice to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and behaviours required of them in their day-to-day work.
The learners can progress towards level 5 qualification or can start degree level studies or apprenticeship.
Typical job titles for the role might include: assistant project manager, junior project manager, associate project manager, project team member. The potential opportunities available are huge as projects can be large or small, defined and delivered within different contexts and across diverse industry sectors.
Currently due to COVID 19 we are teaching online learning. All of our classes are conducted through online Microsoft Teams or Zoom. All of our assessments are also submitted through online systems and feedback is provided to the learners. If any learners will need extra support, we will provide 1-to-1 tutorials to mee their learning needs. However, we will move towards campus-based studies upon the government guidelines and needs of our employers and apprentices.
