Assistant Project Manager at Transport for London
How to become an Assistant Project Manager?
Transport for London offers a number of routes into project management – you can apply for an apprenticeship or graduate scheme.
For the project management apprenticeship scheme, you’ll need five good passing grades in GCSEs or their equivalents including Maths, English language, science or ICT and any two other subjects. You’ll also need to be 18 or over. On completing your apprenticeship you’ll achieve:
- Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management
- Level 4 Diploma in Project Management through completion of a portfolio of work and two exams
This apprenticeship can be a route to a project co-ordinator role, which can lead in turn to becoming an assistant project manager.
For the project management graduate scheme, you’ll need a 2:1 degree in any degree course. The scheme lasts for two years, and you’ll take part in various placements within Transport for London. On top of this, the programme will help you to develop your professional skills and achieve membership of the Association for Project Management (APM) and get an International Project Management Association (IPMA) Level D qualification.
