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!!
