Getting Started in Project Management


 “I don't have the experience” is something that we hear time and again from service leavers. We believe you do have the experience. Perhaps you need to give some thought to the “projects” you have managed during your service (e.g. arranging the Mess Summer Ball, the Summer Fair, or the Christmas Draw).

Gaining a certificate in PRINCE2® or APM will put you in a stronger position to secure job interviews. It will be ten times more difficult to secure an interview without a project management certificate. It is the inter-view that will give you the opportunity to explain the experience that you have.

When looking to start your career in project management, consider your experience, and match this to the different roles in project and programme management.


Programme Manager - Manages large change initiatives; coordinates many projects.

Business Change Manager - Ensure new capabilities are embedded to achieve benefit.

Project Manager - Coordinates work to manage the successful delivery of products.

Project Coordinator/Asst Project Manager - Assisting with maintaining project logs and registers; creating reports and other documentation.

Project Support - Provides administrative support to the project teams.


The course you choose largely depends on the career you wish to pursue. While we cannot choose the course for you, we can certainly give good advice on training for your future.


What makes you choose the right training provider?

What makes you choose the right training provider? It could be price, quality, reputation, location of courses or high pass rates. At SPOCE, you can have all of this, and more. Training with SPOCE will ensure you receive quality, choice and value

And better still, you have the assurance of knowing that when you leave the training course, you will understand what you have been taught. Because being the World’s first accredited training organisation in both PRINCE2® and MSP® ensures we have the experience, knowledge and commitment to meet your requirements.

ELC claim steps

Combi Courses - Get better value from your ELC

To help maximise your learning credits SPOCE has offer a number of combination courses that can be used in the same claim. Not only do the combi-courses ensure that you use your full ELC, but you get better value on the course pricing too.

Any Two 5-Day Practitioner Courses

Individual Contribution - £480/-
ELC Contribution - £1,920/-

The simplest example of a combi-course is for you to choose any two 5-day Practitioner courses from our range of PRINCE2, MSP. APMP, P3O, MoV or MoP. Or you might look at covering a wider range of subjects by taking Foundation level courses or online learning. You can combine any number of courses.

If you are looking to combine three or more courses, you should be aware that your contribution will need to cover the costs over and above the £2,000 ELC (your individual contribution must cover at least 20% of the total cost). If you have a specific combination in mind, then please call our ELC Advisors on +44 (0)1202 739116 and they will help you with your selection and claim.
