What is a PRINCE2® Foundation qualification?

PRINCE2® is one of the most popular project management methods, used by public and private sector businesses and organisations across the world, including the UK Government. Widely respected by employers, it's a required specialism for many project management careers.

The method is a step-by-step approach to project management that uses a practical approach, making it easily adapted to projects of every size, shape and industry. It will help you to reliably deliver projects on time and within budget. 

The PRINCE2® Foundation qualification introduces you to the essentials of this method and will give you the confidence to start using PRINCE2® in your own project management practice.
