PRINCE2® – Foundation and Practitioner full qualification

PRINCE2® (Projects IN Controlled Environments) is the world’s standard project management method that navigates you through the essentials of running a successful project.

Its methodology delivers increased agility and efficiency while reducing costs. Prince2 is used by organisations including the United Nations, Home Office, and the NHS. It is used across industries such as the civil service, oil and gas,  construction, IT, banking, engineering and marketing, and can be applied to any type of project within any sector.
