Benchmark has been delivering accredited training from our home in the world-heritage city of Bath since 2002.
We understand that effective learning means much more than simply passing exams, and we go out of our way to ensure that you are able to apply what you learn in the classroom to your own projects and programmes.
Our aim is to make the universal disciplines of programme and project management accessible to everyone, especially people entering the job market for the first time. And we specialize in approaches that best meet the demands of today’s fast-moving business environments - whether you work in the public, commercial or not for profit sector.
- You’ll learn by doing, not listening. All of our training courses include at least one case study based on a real-world scenario. This is designed to allow you to reinforce their learning through a series of hands-on exercises.
- You can enhance you productivity with state of the art software. We are proud to be the UK’s first delivery partner for Project in A Box, the market leading project management productivity software solution. At the end of your course you’ll be able to download a version of Project in a Box that includes all of the management documents from the case study project that you’ve studied in the classroom. There’s no better way of taking your learning back to the workplace.
- We speak plain English. Our training is delivered in simple and direct language. This means that you are able to focus on the important principles and concepts instead of being distracted by jargon. We publish a series of books - “Projects in Plain English” - that are written in language that cuts through the jargon. The books are all submitted to the Campaign for Plain English so that they can be awarded the famous crystal mark for clarity.
- We’re based in the beautiful city of Bath. Attending a project management course needn’t be all work and no play. You can explore our world-heritage city and we’ll take to lunch out at some of our favourite local restaurants.
