We have places available on our award-winning Professional Development Award in Project Management, beginning in January 2022.

Run with Scotland Excel, the qualification focuses on the practical application of key project management skills in a local government context. It consists of two units:

  • Project Management: Project Justification and Planning
  • Project Management: Managing the Implementation of a Project.

The Professional Development Award is a SCQF (Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework) level 8 qualification and is certified by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.

The programme was voted winner of the Public Sector Employee Development & Skills Award 2019.

So far, 170 people have taken the course since it began in 2018. In 2021, 69 learners from 13 councils took part across 7 cohorts of the qualification.

The next cohort begins on 26 January 2022. If you are interested in taking part, download the flyer to find out more.
