HOW THE PPM LINKS TO OTHER PROJECT MANAGEMENT COURSES

TYPICAL MAIN LEARNING OUTCOMES AND ASSESSMENT

The difficulty of choosing a project management course

The PPM is a practical project management training course to equip project managers and aspiring project managers with appropriate project management skills. The list below gives merely some indication of typical skills taught. Please note that the outcomes and assessment methods vary from year to year, from intake to intake and depending on the lecturers presenting the training modules. The University reserves the right to make any significant changes to the content of the PPM training course without any notification. This document therefore does not imply any commitment on the side of the University or any of its agents.

As the objective is the development of project management skills, several interactive group events take place during the course but the assessments indicated below excludes work done in groups that do not contribute to the final grade. Although contact time on the Weekend course offering is less than on courses presented during the week, the outcomes are nominally the same.
