Suitability - Who should attend?

You don't need any experience or qualifications to enrol on this introductory PRINCE2 course, but some experience of working with a project environment would be helpful.

If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 6.5/ESOL Level 2 or equivalent, but we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.
