Step 1 - Courses & Internal Exam

Here you will complete a carefully selected bundle of project management courses designed to give you a thorough understanding of a wide range of topics. The training is delivered via multimedia-rich video tutorials, presentations and quizzes, through an online portal that you study from home.

You can log into the portal at any time, meaning this can be completed around any full-time job. The emphasis of Step 1 is to learn all of the theory before beginning practical training. This takes around six weeks of full-time study or twelve weeks of part-time study to complete.

At the end of Step 1, you will sit a short online multiple-choice exam to showcase your understanding of the courses before moving onto Step 2.

Step 2 - Projects

Now that you have learned all the theory it’s time to start applying that into practice so that you have the required experience to start within the industry. You will be issued with two real-world projects to complete with one focusing on the Prince2 methodology and the other on the Agile methodology.

You will be provided with a  framework and structure for each project so that you have the necessary guidance to successfully complete your projects which will later be added to your CV.

Step 3 - Official Exams

At this final stage, we will prepare you to take your official Prince2 & Agile Foundation exams. The exams can be taken at one of the approved test centers across the UK or online conveniently from your own home.

Prince2 and Agile are the two most prominent Project management methodologies in the UK so having them added to your CV will be desirable for employers from all industries.

Success Stories

The support throughout as well as the quantity and quality of the training content is nothing short of impressive. From start to finish and even after finding you a job they are one call or E-mail away. Everyone can throw a bunch of online courses your way and leave you to it, but this traineeship offers so much more than that. As an IT Engineer at Fujitsu, my role mostly involves working closely with a huge variety of clients. It’s very challenging and fulfilling at the same time. I think it has opened the doors to a world of opportunities in the industry.

I think the inclusion of the CompTIA A+ exams makes it a very attractive package. The exams consolidated much of what I learned in the video courses, in topics such as hardware, networking, security and troubleshooting, and are a well-known qualification in the industry. I work in a busy IT department in a charitable organisation and support a large number of end users. Although it can be pretty intense, it’s a rewarding role and I’m constantly learning new skills.

Octopus is a forward-thinking company who is keen to promote internally along flexible career pathways. They were interested in my CV because of the CV-rebuild and my background in customer service. I wouldn’t have been able to pass the interview stage without the knowledge I gained from the Traineeship (I distinctly remember being asked in my first interview what DHCP stood for, and I easily chirped “Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol!”). I see myself still working for and advancing within Octopus over the next five years.
