Overview

Course summary

This accredited project management course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course and provides you with an understanding of how the method works in practice. The course completes covering the contents of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®, the official manual of the method, published by the Cabinet Office in 2017.

"Today, complex projects often involve several organisations working together in partnership or through contractual agreements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2® provides a common language between organisations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it." (Cabinet Office's manual)

At the end of the course you will take a 2.5-hour multiple choice test, which leads to the sought-after PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate.

Entry requirements

The course is open to anyone with a PRINCE2 ® (2009) or (2017) Foundation certificate. However, you should continue to familiarise yourself with the methods manual and study for around five hours before the first day of training. You will also need to study between training days.

Teaching and assessment

As the Practitioner course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, where we introduce the method, its philosophy and its terminology, it focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, we will put the method into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the formal test.

The course consists of a series of classroom lectures and group exercises. The lectures introduce the method’s terminology, then we will discuss case studies to explain how to use the method in practice. We will provide supplementary learning material via the University’s online learning platform. At the end of each day we will use multiple choice questions to remind us of the day’s learning and to prepare us for the certificate examination.
