Leeds City Council - Bespoke Project Management Training Package to Fit with Employee Working Week
As you can imagine, Leeds City Council undertake a huge range of projects – from simple projects involving chopping trees down or clearing an area of waste ground for community use to major infrastructure projects. That’s why Leeds City Council require all key staff to undergo project management training in order to be able to deliver the best possible value and performance for the local rate payers.
PL Projects worked with the council and their employees to put together an ongoing training package for council workers on a part time evening basis in order to fit in with their busy working week. Council staff regularly attend these sessions and we have now trained tens if not hundreds in the APM Accredited Project Fundamentals Qualification and Project Management Qualification.
Network Rail - PMO Support including Project Planning and Management for the HS2 Link
The HS2 rail project is almost certainly one of the biggest infrastructure projects that have taken place in the UK in recent memory. As such there are a huge range of challenges and issues involved with putting the project together and making it a success.
Pl Projects worked alongside a number of companies on this project proving key support and planning during the HS2 link stage of the project.
RSPB - PMO Support during expansion of facility at Barsnley
Working with charities such as the RSPB presents a number of important challenges. With limited resources it can be difficult to achieve what’s required in the space of time available. That;s where project management support can come into its own, ensuring budgets are properly worked out, works progress as specified and everything is kept under good governance. We thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of working with the RSPB on their Barnsley site.
Such was the success of our work at Barnsley RSPB that we’re still in touch! We use the RSPB facilities their as a base for our APM Accredited Project Fundamentals Qualification and Project Management Qualification training.
