Provek is proud to announce the launch of the Royal Mail Associate Project Manager programme, in partnership with Provek-Corndel. This is one of three new Associate Project Manager programmes that Provek launched during October.
Provek has worked with Royal Mail for a number of years to support their project managers in gaining APM qualifications, including APM’s flagship PMQ qualification and RPP accreditation.
The Associate Project Manager programme aligns very well to Royal Mail’s training and development of their employees – the blended styles of learning incorporated in Provek’s delivery of the programme supports their ethos, that skills taught are most effectively retained through applied on-the-job learning.
Royal Mail has identified 38 employees that will participate in the first cohort, with more cohorts planned in 2019.
They have identified a number of key benefits the programme will offer, including:
- A great opportunity for younger team members to meet influential colleagues, who can help support their career progression and provide routes to progress.
- Cross pollination of knowledge across different business areas.
- A significant opportunity to help standardise managing Royal Mail Group projects, through defining ‘best practice project management’.
- Supporting Royal Mail’s Registered Project Professionals (RPPs) in their own CPD, by participating in workshops and supporting/mentoring delegates that are participating on the programme.
The programme will be tailored to highlight and emphasise key modules important to Royal Mail, ensuring further relevance to the workplace application for the participants and priorities within the business.
