PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is the world’s most widely adopted, government recognised and industry standard project management professional qualification.

The principles of PRINCE2 provide you with the knowledge and tools to guide you through the techniques and processes to manage successful projects of any type or scale and in any industry.

The Course

At Leicester Castle Business School, we offer the Foundation and Practitioner qualifications over three days per course, two weeks apart. This enhances your learning experience allowing you to take both exams over a short period or the option to take each one independently. Please note that the practitioner status exam cannot be taken without first taking the Foundation Certificate, you will need to provide a copy of the certificate upon enrolment of the Practitioner course if you are not taking both courses together.

All delegates are required to do pre-course reading of around 10 hours and between two to three hours after each session, all of which will be provided to you.

Each course is taught over three days of classroom-based teaching methods from 9.00am until 5.00pm, Monday to Wednesday with the exam of each course at the end of the last day. The exam is paper-based and you will need to bring a pencil and rubber with you in order to take the exam.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided on all training days.
