Our Onshore Development Team is responsible for identifying renewable energy development opportunities, through to the obtaining of all relevant planning consents for these developments. During this three-year programme, our Project Management Apprentice will be involved in some of the most high-profile and high value renewables projects in the UK. Mentored by one of our experienced Project Managers, you’ll play a key role in the development and delivery of renewables projects. And right from the start, you’ll take responsibility for vital aspects of these projects. Liaising with multiple stakeholders throughout the project life cycle, you’ll gain insight into all aspects of the project. 

Throughout your course, you’ll see how your studies link to both the principles and practices behind successful project management. You’ll find that real life scenarios, such as using software tools to assist with planning and execution, will really compliment your learning. And at the end of the programme, you’ll have all the skills and experience you need to be a successful Project Management Co-ordinator. 

This programme is suitable for candidates with and without work experience. You might have two Highers at grades A-C (or equivalent), one of which must be Maths, or a qualification from a Craft Apprenticeship. Alternatively, you might have experience within a project development environment (from feasibility assessment through to design/consent). Or you could have experience in an environmental or project management workplace. Ideally, you’ll also have a driving licence as you’ll need to get to different sites both during and after your training period.
