About this Course

QAAPMP is a knowledge based qualification that allows candidates to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management and is recognised both nationally and internationally, giving candidates a qualification that can be carried from one job or industry to another. Being able to apply the necessary project management principles and techniques is essential for the development of a high performing project management professional.

Whilst the APMP qualification is a pivotal part of this programme, participants will truly understand and be able to apply what they learn throughout the programme to their own projects and they will share ideas with colleagues and have the confidence to challenge and influence their ways.

Why choose a Living Learning Programme?

It follows the 70:20:10 model of learning, blending a selected programme of self-study, virtual classroom (VC) sessions, tutor marked assignments (TMA) and work based assignments (WBA), so that project professionals will engage with their peers and their organisation in a way they have never done before.

Who is this programme aimed at?

Existing or aspiring project managers wishing to achieve a broader level of project management understanding and applications to enable them to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large complex projects. Whilst pre-existing project management experience is not essential, it certainly is beneficial in order to gain the most from this investment.

Programme structure

Through a carefully selected programme combining self-study, virtual classrooms (VC), tutor marked assignments (TMA) and work based assignments (WBA), project professionals will engage with their peers and the organisation in a way they have never done before. The programme will last typically for a 15-16 week duration (this can be reduced though), starting with a Launch Event followed by a mix of VC's, WBA's & TMA's that are carefully scheduled to ensure a good balance between the 'day-job' and meeting the demands of this programme. In addition, at the mid-way point, a 'Half-Way House' event is attended by all and finally, before the examination is scheduled a 'Crammer' event is attended to ensure everyone is given the best possible chance of success with the APMP certification.

All of the aspects of the programme are designed to promote reflection and improvement and to encourage participants to find opportunities to apply the learning in their workplace.
