Prince2 Accredited by APM Group PRINCE2® (PRojects IN a Controlled Environment) is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects - and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, project managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants.

You learn about:

  • the principles of PRINCE2® - which reinforce the good practices of successful projects
  • the themes - which describe aspects of project management that require specific treatment
  • the processes - which describe the progress through a project lifecycle from start-up through to closure.

PRINCE2® can be applied to any type of project - and can be easily implemented alongside specialist, industry-specific models (engineering models or development lifecycles). It is a widely recognised and understood method providing a common vocabulary for all project participants, thereby promoting effective communication. PRINCE2® also provides for the explicit recognition of project responsibilities, so that participants understand each other's roles and needs.

You study at Teesside University (Middlesbrough or Darlington campus). We also provide closed training courses which we can deliver throughout the UK at your own premises.

How you learn

Pre-course reading materials are provided prior to the start of the course. It is essential that you undertake this preparation reading. The main syllabus content is delivered over a period of five days, during which you frequently participate in individual and group exercises to consolidate learning. Homework is set each evening, which will include a review of that day’s content, together with preparatory reading for the following day.

How you are assessed

There are two examinations leading to PRINCE2® qualifications – the first, at the end of day three, is a one-hour closed-book multiple choice exam, leading to the Foundation Level qualification. The results of the exam are given the same day.

The second exam takes place on the afternoon of day five and is a two-and-a-half-hour open book (PRINCE2® Manual only) exam, leading to PRINCE2® Practitioner status.

Career opportunities

The method is a widely recognised standard for project management in the UK and is practised worldwide.

Entry requirements

It is beneficial for delegates to have an understanding of project management, however prior knowledge of PRINCE2® is not essential.
