Simon Robertson successfully introduced the first “PM Skills Pilot Programme” in a Secondary School in the UK in the period 2010-12. This was made possible by a generous budget provided by the PMI EF (Project Management Institute Educational Foundation), For more information and videos see “Training Portal\ Special Interests! page on this website.

The PMI EF make such funding available to not-for-profit organisations and government backed educational establishments. This awarded on a twice annual basis on the winning application.

 Using a simple project management process model based on the PMI PMBOK® Guide processes (below), and tailored PMI EF templates, the students were provided with guidance from the teaching staff, after this Train the Teacher course, and set the assignment to work on. All students worked on the same assignment.
