I wanted to say thank you very much for your support, guidance and encouragement on the Project Management Qualification course. I really enjoyed the course and your company. The delivery was brilliant and I just wish that all training courses could be more like this! I am really inspired to take the next move in my career.

I worked with Luke at JD Sports PLC, where he provided an excellent planning service for the Oracle RMS programme of work. This was a very complex, large piece of fluid work which required precise control, which Luke provided in a professional, highly competent and collaborative way. High demands were made of him, but throughout Luke remained cheerful and in control.

Andy was Alliance Commercial Manager for an ongoing Alliance delivered package of capacity improvements and used his unique team building approach, underpinned by robust bespoke commercial processes, to draw disparate interests together behind delivering what was then the second most technically complex railway infrastructure project in the world.

Rob was my Head of Portfolio Planning at Serco CIO, where he defined and established the planning capability within the CIO Portfolio Management Team. He has vast experience of planning complex projects and programmes yet manages to work successfully with different levels of PPM capability, acting as a combination of subject expert and coach at the same time. Rob’s company also provided a number of very high-quality planners to work directly with project managers. I would have no hesitation in working with Rob again in the future.

The trainers’ wealth of knowledge and experience in project management shone through, which made the learning experience enjoyable. Their communication style kept me engaged and their use of “real world” projects and related examples has allowed me to effectively implement project management approaches in the project environment. I now feel confident to undertake the PMQ and am more than happy to fully recommend PLP as the “go-to” APM project management training provider.

Since joining the team, Emma has brought an infectious energy, her drive to succeed and achieve goals being evident. Emma’s role in the successful outcome of the project should not be understated. She willingly, and without prompt, took the lead in key activities. Emma has excellent communication skills and effectively managed her tasks and reported progress clearly. Her enthusiasm and drive for success was a real credit to the team and anywhere she goes she will prove herself to be a tremendous asset.

I’ve been working with Nathan now for several months and I have nothing but good things to say. He’s diligent, hardworking and always presents solutions to the (many) problems we sometimes encounter on the programme. I can’t stress enough how critical he has been to helping the UCD team continue to deliver on the Test programme and I hope that he gets the recognition that he deserves internally. It’s a pleasure working with him and to my mind he’s performing at a level which justifies increased recognition.
Mike is a star performer and I have immensely enjoyed working with him on this programme. His planning skills are absolutely great and he is committed to helping the team as much as he can. His ability to drive complex plans and highlight the critical paths allowed us to keep track and report progress with confidence. Whilst under tremendous time pressure running multiple complex plans, Mike has always kept his cheerful and friendly attitude. For all these reasons and many more, Mike is very highly respected and trusted at work and will be a huge asset on any programme. It has been an absolute pleasure and honour to work with Mike and I would love to have the opportunity to work with him again

The PFQ has massively helped me improve and excel in a new project management career. The content that was taught has been beneficial to my job role. Mike delivered the course really well. He used relevant examples and analogies which made the learning engaging.

I can highly recommend Brett as a candidate for employment. Brett was employed as a Senior Project Planner on the Primark Oracle Programme from 2018 – 2019. Brett’s main responsibility was to manage multiple project plans for a large-scale Oracle programme; this activity followed co-ordination of numerous external suppliers’ plans. Brett successfully managed these plans to provide the programme with a fully integrated plan, as well as creating procedures for maintenance of plans and a suite of reports, including quality assurance reports. Brett has excellent communication skills, he is extremely organised and highly reliable. He can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure tasks are complete and to a high standard. He is flexible, hard-working and has a can-do attitude. He would be a tremendous asset for any company and has my highest recommendation
The apprenticeship has been really helpful in providing me with specific project management tools that I can apply to my work. Prior to the apprenticeship I was implementing some of the practice informally, however it has given me the opportunity to formalise my way of working which has made it a lot more efficient. This has been especially helpful throughout Covid-19 as my project work has changed and the skills I have learnt have allowed me to effectively adapt to this.
