The Improvement Service congratulates the first cohort of the PDA in Project Management, who have received their certificates for the SCQF level 8 course.
The course, delivered with Scotland Excel, takes a work-based approach to learning. With participants from seven councils, students benefitted from networking and experiences shared as well as the course learning.
“Being able to meet council staff from other local authorities who work in a similar field has provided extra knowledge and insight as well as contacts for any future projects,” said one student.
Another stated, “The course is a lot of work but I have found it enjoyable and it has really guided my thinking in terms of undertaking projects. I am glad I have undertaken the course and am very grateful for all the support which has been offered throughout.”
Further information about this course or our Business Analysis Programme can be found on our Change Management pages.
