Insightful articles from our expert trainers
|Welcome to Spring’s edition of the Provek Newsletter!|
“Welcome all to the Spring edition of the Provek Newsletter.
The daffodils are out, the Six Nations dust has settled and maybe the grass has had its first cut, so Spring has definitely sprung. With Spring comes renewed hope, of seeing family, friends and colleagues face-to-face, being able to experience life outside our postcode, and maybe, just maybe, starting to consider that training course that you’ve had to put off for months.
Of course, there’s always the option of the virtual-classroom training that has become the norm for the last year, and the levels of overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve been receiving from our training courses and workshops serve to remind us that this way of training will be with us for some time to come. Some clients have already told us they intend to stick with the virtual-classroom approach and the benefits it brings, even when classroom-based courses and apprenticeship programmes are back on the menu.
For us at Provek, this suits our client-focused and quality-driven approach – we have great people delivering high-quality training, assessment, and consultancy, to good customers and we want to have fun doing so. We believe that we’ve managed to achieve this in spite of the circumstances of the last twelve months, and the numbers certainly back this up.
So, whilst you enjoy having the kids back in school and you wait for the pubs to re-open, read on to see what is happening here at Provek.”

“What are the benefits of gaining the PPQ first before applying for Chartership?”
As a recognised assessment of technical knowledge, achieving the APM PPQ enables you to follow Route 1 for Chartership. Compared to the Experiential Route 3, Route 1 offers considerable savings on APM fees and reduces the stage 2 interview from two hours to one hour. Route 3 also requires the applicant to provide evidence of recent CPD.
Taking the APM PPQ accreditation provides you valuable experience of a face-to-face interview as the PPQ examination consists of a role play and a Q&A session. Provek offers specialist support for both PPQ and ChPP to give you the best opportunity of achieving a successful outcome.
“Do I need to pass the AgilePM® Foundation prior to the AgilePM® Practitioner?”
Yes, the AgilePM® Foundation certificate needs to be achieved prior to taking the Practitioner level. As the name indicates, the Foundation level teaches the basics of AgilePM®, whilst the Practitioner level delves deeper into each aspect.
“How do I achieve a higher salary in project management?”
Being able to validate experience and capability enables project professionals in demanding higher salaries. Holding chartered (ChPP) status or the Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) provides current and future employers with impartial validation and a benchmark of your experience and capability as a project management professional.
