What you will do in your working day

Planning and Scheduling these projects is an essential, yet exciting element of how we project manage our portfolio.

Planning ensures that all the work can be defined, estimated, scheduled, risked, resourced and costed so that a baseline can be established, deployed, and then managed and controlled.

The placements on this scheme are designed so that you are fully immersed against roles within our Planning and Scheduling community to gain a significant understanding and application of Planning and Scheduling competencies upon completion of the apprenticeship. 
You will build your knowledge on:

Consolidated planning - Purpose and formats for consolidated plans to support overall management, taking account of lessons learnt and how the plans balance fundamental components of scope, schedule, resources, budgets, risks and quality requirements.

Project scope - Requirements management, and evaluation of alternative methods to learn from the past to improve delivery. Project scope change control, baseline change management, configuration management.

Project schedule - Scheduling and estimating for project activities including how they can be quality assessed. Progress monitoring and metrics to assess work performed against the schedule baseline. Schedule management methods to evaluate and revise activities to improve confidence in delivery.
