Project Management (Higher Apprenticeship) (SASE)

Role Profile

With the right initiation, sponsorship, governance, and delivery, any project can succeed. A formal Project Management structure will contribute greatly to project success.
There remains huge scope for the development of Project Management education. The Project Management (Higher Apprenticeship) (SASE) provides a more competent project professional.

Project Management (Higher Apprenticeship) (SASE) Framework

The marketplace for knowledge-based project management qualifications and training courses is highly developed. Whilst valuable, the knowledge gained through these qualifications is only partly required for effective project management.

The Project Management (Higher Apprenticeship) provides an alternative to such courses and helps to increase project success by:

  • Providing structure
  • Developing competence at an earlier career point
The Project Management (Higher Apprenticeship) sets progression routes for either those wishing to enter the profession, or further their career in other disciplines using project management skills. As such, it provides for increasing competency and filling identified skills gaps.

Identified skills gaps include:
  • Stakeholder management
  • Dealing with complexity
  • Communication
  • Technical competencies such as project scheduling, risk management, earned value, planning, and estimating
Project Management is growing as a first-choice career. Traditionally, people moved into project management after work in different sectors and functions. The perception that project management is a mid-career choice means that access to talented and competent young project professionals remains limited. Many project management functions can provide opportunities for younger professionals to develop into more senior project roles over time.

The availability of higher apprenticeships will formally recognise this value and lay firm foundations for the next generation of competent Project Management professionals.
