PRINCE2 ® Project Management

PRINCE2® (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is an industry standard used extensively by UK Government and is widely recognised and used internationally. It is a structured project management method based on experience drawn from thousands of projects and from the contributions of countless project sponsors, project managers, project teams, academics, trainers and consultants.

PRINCE2® project management courses are held at The Growth Hub. You can study a stand-alone 3 day ‘PRINCE2® Foundation’ course or take the full 5 day course. Those with a current PRINCE2® Foundation qualification can also take the stand-alone 2 day Practitioner course.

For full details and upcoming PRINCE2® dates, please visit The Growth Hub’s website. For further information, call us on 01242 715400 or email
