Apprenticeship View: Associate Project Management Level 4

I’m now two months into my Level 4 Associate Project Management apprenticeship and what has been interesting to see first-hand is the amount of off-the-job training that is required in the new world of standards.  At AELP we talk about off-the-job training a lot in various webinars, workshops and at our member sector forum meetings, but experiencing it myself has provided an excellent insight which I’m sure will be useful for future guidance for our members.  The Associate Project Management standard includes a mandatory qualification so has included lots of preparation and mock questions to prepare me for this – bearing in mind I haven’t sat an actual exam for a long time!! I’m now surrounded by text books and revision notes, not to mention assignment and portfolio notes and resources.  And to think that IfA are currently reviewing this standard’s funding band – we’ll await the outcome of that announcement!!

As members may have seen from recent social media posts, I have just embarked on a Level 4 Project Management Apprenticeship.

Party conferences and the ‘forgotten 50%’

Is the FE and skills sector really going to be ‘supercharged’ by the current government or a new government after the expected general election? For all the positive noises made at the three main party conferences over the past month, it is a reasonable question to ask.

End point assessment: Why the IfA needs to get a grip

What do providers really want from an end point assessment organisation?  Recently AELP surveyed a significant number of training providers with regard to what were they looking for in an end point assessment organisation (EPAO) and we were somewhat surprised to see that price didn’t feature as their number one priority.  In fact it didn’t feature at number two or even number three in what providers look for in an assessment partner.
