GKN Aerospace partner with Provek to support them in using their Apprenticeship Levy to fund development of their project managers.

As a levy paying organisation GKN Aerospace recognised the value of delivering the Provek Associate Project Manager programme to develop their inhouse project management capability.

Provek is proud to announce the launch of the GKN Aerospace Associate Project Manager programme today, in partnership with Provek. This is one of three new Associate Project Manager programmes that Provek are launching this month.

Provek has worked with programme directors at GKN Aerospace to target the content within the programme, ensuring direct relevance to the workplace application for the participants and priorities within the business.

Key objectives of the programme include:

  • Help individuals develop confidence and capabilities within their roles.
  • Build on core skills such as building business cases, forecasting, scope management and managing conflicting priorities, to drive efficiencies.
  • Engrain new skills the participants learn, through workplace application and continual on-the-job learning.
  • Support individuals in their career progression.

About the Provek Associate Project Manager programme

Provek’s Associate Project Manager programme is fully funded by the Government Apprenticeship levy. It develops the technical skills and professional behaviours needed to manage projects effectively in different delivery environments, and incorporates APM’s flagship Project Management Qualification (PMQ).

Provek’s condensed 13-month programme is broken down into six core modules, directly aligned to the PMQ syllabus and seventeen learning areas of the level 4 apprenticeship standard.

The skills developed through the programme are not only suitable for project managers, but largely recognised as core business skills that will support individuals who manage projects as part of their wider role. This programme is thus suitable to provide levy-funded project management training for a variety of employees with varying levels of experience, helping to address business-wide project management issues, as well as support individuals progress within their careers.

Participants benefit from personal one-to-one coaching and mentoring, and are required to apply the skills learned weekly within their roles, helping to engrain these new skills and embed positive change within their organisation.

Paul Ashbee, Technical Training Manager, GKN Aerospace Filton

“GKN Aerospace were excited to have the first cohort of employees commence the Associate Project Management Apprenticeship on Thursday 25th October. Moving into the realm of Project Management Apprenticeships is a first for our organisation, but it was seen as a logical step to further support our PM Certification Development Pathway. It was also a logical move to select Provek as the training provider, due to their proven track record of high quality delivery within this field”.
