Projects can be defined and delivered within different contexts, across diverse industry sectors. They can be large or small. Every project needs to be managed to ensure its success. An Associate Project Manager knows what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved, how long it will take and how much it will cost, and works with the project team to achieve the required outcomes.
Associate Project Managers need good planning, organisation, leadership, management and communication skills. Be able to utilise resources with suitable skills, qualifications, experience and knowledge to work together in a motivated and integrated team, with defined reporting lines, roles, responsibilities and authorities.
Roles/Occupations may include: Assistant Project Manager, Junior Project Manager, Project Team Leader, or Project Manager as a generic job title.
The end-point assessment takes place at the end of the apprentice’s learning and development after a minimum of eighteen months ‘on-programme’ training and development, equating to a minimum of 20% of the apprenticeship as ‘off job’ training. The end-point assessment should only commence once the employer is confident that the apprentice has developed all the knowledge, skills and behaviours defined in the apprenticeship standard. It ensures that all successful apprentices have achieved the industry set professional standard for an Associate Project Manager.
Once the employer is satisfied, the end-point assessment can be arranged with ELS.
