Not all projects necessitate complex planning, however having knowledge of project management can greatly enhance an individual’s effectiveness and help them successfully deliver their work.

This one day course will introduce attendees to the concepts around project management and provide them with a framework to use so that they will become more confident when managing their own projects and even organising day to day tasks.

By the end of the session attendees will have learnt:

  • How to define the aims and objectives of a project, so they can be clear about what is included in a piece of work and who needs to be involved
  • How to budget effectively and to anticipate problems, so that they can put strategies in place to manage them
  • How to be clear about what they want to achieve with a piece of work so that they can track progress and evaluate success
  • Some of the language around project management


This course is open to all Pears Grantees and aimed at anyone that would like to gain an understanding about the fundamentals of project management. It would be particularly appropriate for junior members of staff who are responsible for small projects or would benefit from learning techniques to help them organise pieces of work.
