Topic Background:

PRINCE2 (Projects in Controlled Environments, version 2) is a project management methodology that prioritises control, organisation and quality management along with reliability and meeting project objectives. It is derived from a previous method called PROMPT II (Project Resource Organisation Management Planning Techniques), which was the government standard for IT project management. The name later changed to PRINCE® which originally stood for “PROMPT II In the CCTA Environment” before changing to the acronym we know it as today.

The PRINCE® methodology later became widely used outside the purely IT industry, prompting a general project management methodology to be produced and released as PRINCE2. It has become one of the most popular project management methodologies and is now a standard for project management in multiple departments in UK Government.

Since its release, PRINCE2® has become the world’s most popular project management qualification with over 1 million exams taken, with the UK taking up over half of the world’s total.


As the standard method for project management, PRINCE2® will benefit your organisation in multiple aspects. It provides a flexible approach that is highly adaptable and can suit all projects. It provides a framework that covers all areas within a project. It provides your organisation with:

  • Effective communication channels between the organisation, project management and the project
  • An organised timescale to the project
  • A method of sharing lessons learned
  • An increase in competency of staff and project management skills
  • Progress reviews against the plan and the business case
  • Flexible decision points.

What does study method mean?

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.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

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.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

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.
