Association for Project Management (APM)
A sports tournament. An IT upgrade. A new film set. A holiday with your mates.
These are all projects.
Projects come in different shapes and sizes and have, local, national and global impacts.
Every project needs a team to keep a close eye on plans, budgets, people, quality of outputs and any issues that may cause a problem. Without one, projects are likely to fail. That could mean the late opening of a new airport terminal or, worse, no music festival.
So, what does a project professional look like?
If you’re organised, a great communicator and enjoy a challenge, they look like you.
APM (Association for Project Management) is Europe’s largest professional body devoted to projects. We have more than 27,000 project and change professionals around the world – and we launched our Chartered Project Professional status in 2018, with many hundreds of senior professionals now using the letters ChPP after their name.
There are plenty of graduates in our profession, but also many apprentices.
We worked with companies from a huge range of sectors to develop two project management standards:
- Level 4 Associate Project Manager apprenticeship
- Level 6 Project Manager degree apprenticeship
We also know that informed decisions are the best ones, which is why we have a free Student membership of APM for students aged 16 or over. Giving you access to knowledge as well as networks, it’s a great way to learn about our profession – and tell employers you’re interested.
