Project Team discussing ideas - Level 4 Project Management Qualification

EAL is currently in the final stages of developing an exciting new Level 4 Project Management competence qualification which will be available from September 2021.

Our new qualification:

  • is assessed in the workplace with a portfolio of evidence

  • can be used by experienced project managers who wish to formalise their expertise or those simply wanting to upskill
  • requires circa 1,700 guided learning hours
  • will be available in all four Nations
  • Our new qualification has also taken onboard the views of recent project management apprentices to ensure that their learning experiences have been taken into account and provides both engaging and relevant content delivering the highest quality project managers.

The qualification content covers:

  • Developing personal and professional practice through project delivery
  • Project initiation
  • Project planning and scheduling
  • Project monitoring and reporting
  • Contract and quality management
  • Managing teams and stakeholders
