Level 4 Associate Project Manager Apprenticeship

Course Overview

The Skills Network's Associate Project Managers Level 4 Apprenticeship Programme hones the Apprentices' skills in project governance, stakeholder management, communication, planning, budgeting, scheduling and risk management. Apprentices are encouraged to demonstrate all of the above whilst collaborating in a team and showing effective leadership skills and professionalism.

The Skills Network offers individualised learning to each Apprentice, and heavily involves the employer with every aspect of the course to ensure progress is meaningful. In addition, a curriculum scoping exercise provides an opportunity to review prior learning and completed qualifications, with the aim of personalising the Apprenticeship to support and enhance the business, and therefore the Apprentices’ progress, progression and their final grade for their Associate Project Manager Level 4 Qualification.

We have the ability to individualise every Apprentices scheme of work to produce a bespoke delivery plan tailored around the individual's needs. This incorporates content from our e-learning catalogue which gives a more enhanced Apprenticeship and ensures that both the business’ and the Apprentices’ goals are successfully defined and delivered.

Prior attainment is carefully considered from the start to ensure time on the programme is maximised. The Skills Network offers a strong IAG to ensure that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey.


Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:

  • It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in Maths and English (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their Apprenticeship training. For those Apprentices who are yet to achieve a level 2 in Maths and English will have the opportunity to complete these qualifications during their Apprenticeship. However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their end-point assessment.
