Many of these skills are transferable and can be applied to the management of any complex business task, in particular those requiring detailed planning, prioritising and analysis.

Structure

The course is designed to give you a Postgraduate Certificate in Project Management from UWE, with the additional option to complete the PRINCE2® Practitioner and the APM Project Management Qualification (if required) alongside.

You can register for the course at any time and start the PRINCE2 learning (if you wish to do so) before the next run of the Project Management Competence module.

Modules

• Project Management Competence
• Project Management Principles in Practice

Additional assessment will be required for those wishing to gain the PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification and/or the APMP qualification (SCQF Level 7).

Format

If you opt to study the course online, you will have access to our full distance learning package with online materials and synchronised live sessions with your tutors via our Blackboard system. Group drop-in sessions will also run at set times throughout the year where you can meet with other course participants and discuss your progress.

Alternatively you can choose to study the course via a mix of online study units and face-to-face group sessions at our campus in Bristol to reinforce your e-learning and independent study.

On both routes, you will benefit from a range of learning methods, including e-learning, teaching based on research literature and practical experience, and peer and work-based learning. A significant emphasis is placed on drawing insight from real examples of project management work, and you will also have the opportunity to engage with the APM Body of Knowledge and academic literature on project management.

Assessment

Assessment for the Project Management Competence module takes the form of a reflective report on a project you are involved in. You will complete a 400-word proposal identifying key elements to be reviewed in your final report, and then review a project, discussing the elements identified in your proposal.

The Project Management Principles in Practice module is assessed through a work-based learning assignment, consisting of:
• a proposal containing research objectives/outcomes
• a written project (up to 8,000 words)
• a client presentation
• an informal viva with your supervisor to reflect upon your project experience.

Careers / Further study

This programme gives project management professionals the technical knowledge, skills development opportunities, and access to further professional qualifications, to be able to take their career to a senior project manager or director level.

Many participants use the course as a fast-track route onto the Association for Project Management (APM) and PRINCE2® Practitioner qualifications.

The course is also a stepping stone towards APM Registered Project Professional status for colleagues who gain the APMP qualification and have sufficient experience of managing complex projects, we can look to develop a portfolio of evidence with the self-reflection and communication skills required to support this application.
