Description

Developed by leading academics in the University of Liverpool’s AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS accredited Management School, this programme has been designed to equip you with the right tools and technologies to support decision-making and ensure timely delivery of project objectives. You will reflect on the principles and methodologies of the leading professional Project Management bodies, such as the Association for Project Management (APM) and the Project Management Institute (PMI).

The programme is designed to facilitate the development of technical competence in areas including risk management, monitoring and control of projects, and procurement, as well as a core understanding of operations management principles, which can plague project delivery. Learning will be action and practice-focused, with students testing out theory and knowledge within their own current or previous organisational contexts and experience and seeking out actionable knowledge in response to current problems they face.

You will be equipped with the appropriate knowledge and expertise to pursue qualifications, such as PMQ (APM), PPQ (APM), PMP (PMI), CAPM (PMI) for those with some Project Management experience, or PFQ (APM) for those just starting out.

The programme is accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM). The APM is the only chartered membership organisation for the project profession in the world. APM’s Academic Accreditation identifies courses and modules that meet its rigorous criteria for course content, quality and standards.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
