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

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 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.

Trainer Biography

Michelle Jacobs

Michelle is the Director of Programmes and Operations at JHub and is responsible for curating all aspects of the workspace and professional development programme.

Her background in project management comes from a decade in the civil service leading on projects that ranged from strategic and organisational change, policy development and legislation implementation, governance and compliance. She was also a founding Governor at Alma Primary School and was centrally involved in the project to open the school and leading on work to develop the admissions process and advising on governance issues.

Michelle designed this course specifically for Pears Grantees after realising that there were no short courses that taught the fundamentals of Project Management within a framework that could be easily applied across an organisation.
