Project management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals using available resources. This is more important than ever in health and social care where managers are under increasing pressure to deliver better outcomes and greater efficiency in every aspect of their work.

This one-day course will review the basic principles covered in our introductory course (Project management level one) before going on to consider examples of learning from real projects and discuss different scenarios. Participants will have the opportunity to apply learning from the session to projects they have managed in the past and consider what they might have done differently.

Participants are expected to have some knowledge and experience of project management, though it is not necessary to have completed the level one course.  

You are invited to come with queries and with local scenarios you would like to explore with your fellow participants.

Claire Walters, one of the facilitation team, says: “We’ve had great feedback from people on our introductory course, but a lot of them expressed an interest in going beyond the theory and getting stuck into the practical aspects of the topic.

“It’s not often you get the chance to share experience and work together with colleagues in a safe environment. This new course should suit anyone who wants to take their project management skills to the next level.”
