The Certificate in Project Management and
Implementation Science is an applied programme
aimed at supporting managers in non-profit
organisations to identify and introduce evidence based
approaches and to use the latest research techniques
to support their work. You will learn the factors that
impede the use of evidence-based practices and gain
an understanding of how to overcome these factors
using project management principles. In a world where
solid research evidence is required from organisations
and leaders in the sector this programme will give you
the skills to provide that.
Not-for-profits are increasingly being asked to
evidence the approach used in their work. For many
services interventions have grown organically as
their service has developed. This course teaches
participants how to use research to develop an
evidence base for their work and how to implement
changes to existing programmes. The course is
targeted at senior managers and staff who are
responsible for service delivery.
This is a Special Purpose Award level 9 (10 ECTS credits).
Learners who complete this programme may be able to transfer some credits to an MSc in Non-Profit Management subject to progression rules at the time of application.
Applicants are required to hold a minimum of a 2.2
honours degree at level 8 or equivalent on the National
Framework of Qualifications. Applications may also be
considered under the college’s Recognition of Prior,
Experiential Learning (RPEL) policy and this is likely to
be particularly germane to non-profit sector managers
who do not hold an undergraduate degree but have
substantive work and managerial experience. This
programme requires applicants to have previous work
and managerial / team leader experience.
Based on the history of other CPD programmes provided
by the partners, all learners are likely to be currently
employed in the sector. This programme will help to
further develop your skills and competences in the sector.
