Student Stories

Project Management

"I found the tutor great, he gave really constructive feedback and explained things when I wasn't quite there with the answer. I recently attended a 1 day course in Project Management to get a different perspective and ensure everything I had learnt was on track. It turned out I knew a lot more than the other students even though most of them have been working on projects for years and I have just begun. I've started looking for jobs in project management as a result." Kalena. Takanini

"I have recommended the Stott’s Project Management course to two colleagues, one has since completed the course, the other has recently enrolled." D.C. Huntly

"I loved the course and I am really sorry that you don't have advanced project management. Tutor, Dr Young was excellent giving me constructive feedback and accepting my views and opinions. Thank you so much, I have really enjoyed doing the course." N.D. Auckland
