What is Certificate in Project Management?sob

The Certificate in Project Management is a new short (fifteen week) Level 8 programme specifically designed for those who are keen to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to perform effectively at an executive level in organisations.

The delivery of the programme utilises a blended learning approach which incorporates methods including lectures (online and face-to-face), workshops, videos, case studies and discussion boards to replicate the managerial scenarios and tasks that participants would encounter in the real world. It aims to equip candidates with modern tools for effective decision-making and to provide them with the ability to evaluate their decisions in the context of real-world case examples.
