As we celebrate our first anniversary of the partnership between Interserve Learning & Employment and Parallel Project Training, it’s made us pause for some reflection. Once we got passed the incredulity that a full 12 months have passed since we started on the journey of developing the Associate Project Manager programme, we started to list some of the key milestones along the way…

  • Successfully launched our innovative model for the new associate project manager apprenticeship qualification in May 2017 – with immediate results!
  • Over 100 Associate Project Manager Apprentices signed up and in learning by the end of October 2017
  • Appointed as a provider on the Crown Commercial Services framework for Project Management
  • Working with many household brands including Unilever, VW and Volkerail to roll out Project Management training for their employees over the next few months

It has been an exciting period for us over the last few months and the partnership between Parallel and Interserve has gone from strength to strength as we’ve successfully delivered an exciting learning journey for our apprentices; the Project Managers of the future.

We are really proud of how we have brought together the best of both organisations. It’s proven that a sub-contracting partnership model to deliver Apprenticeships can really produce great results and ensure that apprentices receive the highest quality of learning.

But don’t just take our word for it; here’s what some of the current learners on programme are saying:

PM apprentices at Volker Rail:

The content and the structure of the course is good and will help with my personal development within my current role

I’m enjoying the course! And obviously learning new, specific elements of project management

Unilever PM apprentice:

The structure and content of the course is good and the information provided is what’s needed to support me within my job role

Interserve PM apprentice:

Enjoying the course and am taking elements of it to use within my existing position of Project Manager for a contract we have with NHS

Over the next months we are delivering many more of these Associate Project Management apprenticeships in the Bristol, Birmingham, London, Sheffield, Manchester, Milton Keynes and Derby areas.
