  • Career Prospects

    The project management profession provides vast opportunities across almost all major industries. It calls for individuals who have the right knowledge in handling valuable resources, such as time, money and manpower, ensuring that all three elements fuse well together to ensure that projects meet set objectives within defined timeframes.

    The fact is, in order for any company, charity or other organisation to advance, projects need to be planned, monitored and completed effectively. Project managers are integral to this. These experts can work on a variety of different types of projects – whether it’s the development and launch of an app, the construction of a housing estate or the running of an advertising campaign.

    As a project manager, you’ll liaise between the people commissioning a project and the people carrying it to fruition to ensure everything goes smoothly and according to plan. You’ll need to be personable, assertive and open to compromise, and strong communication skills are a must.

    Equipped with these transferable skills, you’ll be able to work in almost any industry virtually anywhere in the world – and you could even have the option of working remotely. Additionally, you could set up your own business as a freelance project manager, giving yourself the financial freedom and flexibility of being your own boss.

    Industries most reliant on project managers include, but are by no means limited to, the following:


    • Telecommunications
    • Information technology
    • Health
    • Education
    • Government (all levels)
    • Media
    • Marketing
    • Building
    • Finance
  • Course Levels Explained


    Our project management course leads to the awarding of a Diploma. This qualification recognises the graduate’s capacity for initiative and judgement across a broad range of technical and management functions. Diploma holders typically have personal responsibility and autonomy (semi-independence) in performing technical operations or organizing others in the workplace.
