Project Management Academy Update

At the request of the Chairman, the Town Clerk provided an update on the Project Management Academy and the following points were made.


·         The City had commissioned an external company to prepare a bid to have the City’s Project Management Academy accredited by the Association of Project Management (APM). The application would be reviewed by the City and submitted to the APM shortly. Members were welcome to suggest a name for the Project Management Academy.


·         In response to a question, the Town Clerk committed to confirming the headline timeline for accreditation, and circulating Project Management Academy modules to Members for information.


·         The Town Clerk confirmed that the Project Management Academy would be in operation pending accreditation, with officers attending the academy in the meantime receiving retrospective accreditation.


·         The Chairman welcomed progress made, noting that it was important to secure external recognition for the academy.
