    Why should you consider the Master Bundle?

    tickIncreased Employment Opportunities and Better Salary Rewards

    Project Management methods and frameworks are evolving faster than ever. This is occuring in order to keep pace with the growing needs of public and private organisations to deliver better project outcomes and benefits. This rapid evolution has expresses itself in recent years in the following ways:-

    • Increased use of AGILE methods and techniques such as Lean, SCRUM and KANBAN (PRINCE2 AGILE®)
    • Greater demand for formally qualified project managers (PRINCE2®).
    • Rising Salaries for qualified Project Management Professionals.
    • More rapid and frequent organisational change requiring project managers to have specific Change Management skills and abilities (Change Management®).

    Research studies indicate that unqualified people aspiring to be project managers or wanting to progress their project management careers face the following barriers:

    • PRINCE2® is most requested project management qualification in relation to newly advertised project management roles.
    • Many recruiters use keywords such as PRINCE2 to screen applications for interview selection.
    • Qualifications and skills in Agile related Project Management are the second most requested requirement.
    • Change Management vacancies are rapidly increasing and many project management roles now require Change Management skills and qualifications.

    A common concern with eLearning is that you will be un-supported as a learner.  With our courses this is not so.  Not only will you be able to see questions asked by previous learners through subject forums, but you will be able to directly message the trainer if you are stuck or don’t understand something.  Trainers will respond to your question(s) within 24 hours, but usually much quicker.

    Furthermore, our courses use multi-media and have been carefully designed to cater for different learning styles, preferences and abilities:

    • Visual Learners – our courses are visually engaging, with many diagrams and images to illustrate and highlight key points
    • Auditory Learners – our courses contain clear audio, delivered by subject specialists rather than actors, which we find helps ensure that emphasis is placed on the most important aspects
    • Kinaesthetic Learners – our courses have many test questions and inter-active exercises embedded within them to aid those who learn best through practising what they have learnt
    • Course Accessibility – if you have a hearing impairment, or need to turn the audio off a full transcripts are available within our courses

    Some benefits of eLearning include:

    • Learning can occur at a time and place to suit you – around your work commitments and lifestyle
    • You can repeat the course units, exercises and tests as many times as you like, until you are confident
    • It is often cheaper than classroom courses, and there are no travelling costs!
    • Associated exams can also be taken at home, on-line at a time to suit you using ProctorU service
