What is assessed?
You will be assessed against 30 criteria and need to demonstrate that you can:
- Understand project context and the overall business case;
- Effectively apply project management planning;
- Apply a risk management process competently to the project;
- Optimise project plans to respond to a major change;
- Monitor project progress and take suitable controlling action;

How is it assessed?

Individual work: You will be expected to answer written questions based on a case study and answer a question regarding current issues in project management.
Group work: Working in groups you will be observed discussing and solving problems related to the case study.
Interview: Candidates will be interviewed by their assessors.
