This course addresses a specific need for professionals within the built environment to develop project management and entrepreneurial skills. 


The programme is designed for those in the middle of their career looking to progress to senior management or become self-employed but is equally applicable to those who are looking to upskill and keep abreast of the needs of industry.

  • In today’s fast-paced business economy of getting ahead and staying ahead, project management is a highly sought-after skill. New projects are often expensive and high-risk, so clients will pay more for the assurance of deliverables. From project planning to leading to monitoring to managing and delivering, this course will give you the vital skills and techniques you need to secure the success of high performing projects. These skills are particularly useful if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, looking to upskill or are returning to the workplace.

You will develop an entrepreneurial mind-set which will increase your value to potential employers or help you plan ventures of your own.
