‘Hands to the plough’

Getting ready to support the delivery of projects or manage the delivery of projects yourself is completing different from the theory covered in the classroom. To bring your classroom experience to life and get the job you are looking for, there is a need to ‘get your hands dirty’ by working on a project. This is exactly what our Work-experience programme offers.


What are the benefits of taking the Work experience programme?

·        Mentoring - Our work-experience programme offers real experience; you are assigned to a real project and expected to take on responsibility and deliver within your assigned scope under the careful mentoring of an experienced Project Manager.

·        Understanding Project Lifecycles - Very few professionals have the privilege of experiencing a project from the very start right through to completion. The Work-experience programme is based on a fresh project initiative described as a ‘Trigger’ which is defined, planned and implemented from scratch to completion. At the end of this experience, you will be skilled-up in PM methods and confident enough to either support the delivery of any project in any industry.

·        Developing skill and getting a reference Once you have completed 4 Saturday on the Work experience programme, you qualify to get a reference based on your performance on the project.

·        End-to-end understanding and the confidence to succeed - At the end of this experience you will have a complete practical understanding of how projects start, are tested for feasibility, the research and workshops involved in getting a project started, commencing implementation i.e. how project participants/teams work together to deliver a successful project, the paths and pitfalls. In addition to this, you will learn the methods and importance of formally ending a project i.e. the method of effectively closing a project, disbanding the team and passing on lessons learnt as intellectual capital for future projects.

   

Who is the work-experience programme suitable for?

Fresh graduates / No experience:-

Graduate employment can be quite fierce as the buzz phrase ‘experience required’ is a key requirement these days. Gone are the days of modern apprentices and graduate trainee opportunities are few and far between.
