What Does The Apprenticeship Involve?

Our Project Manager Degree Apprenticeship is designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to become a Project Manager or Project Control Manager; you will study towards a BSc qualification whilst doing a real job.

Whatever project you are assigned to you’ll be the eyes and ears of a project, ensuring that it stays on track. You will maintain, update and report on key project data, identify any potential issues as the project progresses and help make effective decisions to move the project along. You’ll be using the latest project management tools to assist the Project Manager in keeping projects on track.
Over the duration of the scheme you will gain exposure to all areas of your business unit, working on varied projects and be involved in all stages of the project lifecycle through rotating placements every 12 months and being offered a number of stretch assignments and enrichment activities which support your development.
As a Project Management Degree Apprentice you will not just be office based, you will have the opportunity to get out and about visiting key stakeholders across various locations as well as seeing the work you are supporting in situ.
