Project Management

I started retraining with ITonlinelearning in October 2020, I decided to do Project Management which included PRINCE2, Agile and Business Analysis.

I had my own personal cheerleader. I received my CV back and it was incredible, it had given me the confidence I needed to go out and find a new job with the new qualifications I had, it said everything I wanted to say about myself but I didn’t have the right language. I also had help with interview questions, not only about project management but also about the job I was going for. She also did some research into the company as well so I felt prepared, organised and supported right the way through the process. I am pleased to say that I now have a job in the industry that I wanted to work in and I will say that most of this is due to choosing to go with ITonlinelearning.

I enrolled in the Project Manager programme last year in 2020. With the continuous support and help from my tutor I was able to successfully complete my courses and do my exams within a short period of time.

I was able to secure a role in the project management field for a reputable organisation and I look forward to starting that soon.

I came from an emergency service background and I wanted a change in career. I had always liked the idea of project management and I thought I had some transferable skills but I didn’t have any qualifications behind me to really back that up. I did my research and one of the first companies to come up on Google was ITonlinelearning so I enquired online and was called back within a couple of hours. They answered all my questions and I went ahead and proceeded with an application to study with them.

I sent in my previous CV and it wasn’t until I got it back after a couple of weeks that I thought – wow! I could never have produced anything close to how good that looked. It really made the difference I feel, I got the CV back in the first couple of weeks in January and by March I had been offered a Project Coordinator role.

I enrolled onto the project management placement programme on the 3rd April 2020. I completed PRINCE2 by the 18th May, little over a month after enrolling, I passed first time. I then completed the AgilePM Foundation by the following month, 6th June and completed the Change Management Foundation the following month after that so the 25th July. Finally, I passed the Simulated Project Management assignment with 93% in September.

It’s now May 2021 and I have recently been accepted as a Project Management Trainer in the education sector which is great. I am on 30% more than what I was on in my previous role. PRINCE2 and the other qualifications has definitely helped that.

Pause the resources when you need to. Continue to make notes. Revisit as many times as you like. Look for opportunities as well to work on projects either in your current role or through volunteering. Be persistent and make yourself accountable to apply for the roles.

Project Management Placement Programme; PRINCE2 Foundation, AgilePM Foundation and Change Management Foundation.

The reason why I chose this course is because I just embarked on my career as a Business Data Analyst and I was looking for something that would increase my skill set, enhance my experience and push me to that next level.

The tutor Gregg for the PRINCE2 was excellent and the analogies he uses makes the information so easy to digest. The Student Support, Ryan in particular, was also very helpful, right from the point of my enrolment up until me revising for my exam. The online platform is very user friendly and practical, it allowed me to study on the fly which was very helpful.

Hamish

I come from a research science background and last year I decided that I wanted real world skills outside of academia. Project Management skills are widely used and generalisable, and ITonlinelearning offered a chance to gain these qualifications, plus a recruitment component to help you secure a role in the field afterwards.

I managed to secure a role in the sector recently and my project management qualifications were definitely relevant to my application, as was my updated CV.

I think that if you want to gain project management qualifications and if you want to work with recruiters to gain a role in the sector, I think that this course offers great value for money and could be a wise investment in yourself.

I signed up to ITonlinelearning during the first lockdown to gain further skills and qualifications to enable me to go further in my career in my current industry.

The whole team at ITonlinelearning have been incredible, from the notes before exams to someone always being there to answer a question at the end of an email.

For me, these qualifications gave me the confidence to apply for more project management roles within my current industry and ultimately landed me a role which really gives me the career progression that I wanted.

Daniel Lee

I found ITonlinelearning on Google, I was looking for project management certifications and some different courses to make my CV look a little bit better. I found some reviews online on ITonlinelearning and all of them were really good so I decided to go ahead.

I got a job as an associate consultant at a company called CapCo, and it was thanks to having project management skills, having those certifications and being able to do the interviews well.

I highly recommend ITonlinelearning if you are looking to update your skills, update your CV, if you are doing a career change or maybe it’s your first job, whatever it is, this is a very helpful process with different tutors, coaches and having that guidance and support, it’s all one huge package.

Cheri Matthews

Cheri Matthews

I signed up to ITonlinelearning in May 2020, I was looking for a change in career and really wanted to get into the project management world.

The simulated project was really helpful, it put everything into perspective for me. It did the project from start to finish and you can see everybody doing it and see the things you have to do, what you have to understand – the whole process, which I thought was fantastic. I passed the assessment and got a mark of 83%.

I have now secured myself a project administrator job which I start next week and I don’t think I would have got this far if it wasn’t for the support. I completely recommend ITonlinelearning.

Anisha Jain

Anisha Jain

My experience with ITonlinelearning has been extremely wonderful. I have no regrets that I took this package. The team is great, my mentor has been extremely helpful and has always provided me with the right resources and cleared any doubts for my exams. My recruitment manager has been a wonderful guide and has always been there.

Nicolo Solari

Project Management Programme

Nicolo Solari

I was working full-time, so I didn’t really have much time to dedicate to the studies but within 9/10 months I managed to finish all the certifications.

After I got my updated CV, I applied randomly for jobs and a few of them offered me interviews straight away. When I started to look properly for a job, I got a lot of replies and managed to secure good interviews. Within 11 months, I secured a position as a Project Manager for a reputable company in Scotland.

Tara Green

Project Management Programme

Tara Green

I did PRINCE2 and AgilePM from home, and the Business Analysis one I did in an exam centre. I enjoyed both of them. It was quite exciting doing it from the exam centre.

Jess has supported me, whether it’s been from looking at job applications and mock interviews. She’s always been there for any help or any questions. Even when she was really busy to do the mock interview, she prepared the questions and she got someone else to do that with me, which I thought was really good and it really helped me build my confidence when going into the interview. From working with Jess I have now got my first job as Project Administrator.

Scott Brown

Project Management Programme

Scott Brown

I started my journey with ITonlinelearning back in April 2020 after deciding to take redundancy from the role I was in at the time. I decided on the Project Management Placement Programme as I wanted something to do to keep my mind occupied through the job hunting, as well as cementing and developing my skills.

The information was clearly laid out and easy to follow, you can pause the video lectures and go back if you have missed something or if you feel you need to revisit just before you take the exams.

After all this, I am hopefully starting a new role on the 7th June as an administrator which hopefully I will be able to continue building on skills that I’ve learnt during the course.

Michelle

Project Management Programme

I have gained a position within the NHS as a Project Administrator which I am due to start on Monday.

To anyone who is thinking about these courses, I would highly recommend them. Even during these uncertain times, ITonlinelearning have allowed me to pursue a whole new career and find something I am finally happy in.

Garluwa Sandy

Project Management Programme

Garluwa Sandy

The online lectures are very good, they’re very thorough but easy to understand, and they’re coupled with quizzes at the end to test your understanding. Even at that stage you are provided with a mentor to help you, my mentor was Ryan who was very useful and anytime I needed assistance he was always there to support me.

I recently completed my Project Management courses with ITonlinelearning and within 3-4 months I was offering a job position. I highly recommend their services to anyone who wants to pursue a career in Project Management.

Lucy Hay

Project Management Programme

Lucy Hay

These courses have helped me secure employment in the UK Government, in the Ministry of Justice and I’m confident without these qualifications that I gained through ITonlinelearning, I’d never have got this job.

Elliott Brown

Project Management Programme

Elliott Brown

I started my journey into Project Management in September 2020. I made a start with Ryan as my coach to help mentor me through all the qualifications that I was doing. I did my PRINCE2 Foundation, Agile Foundation and I choose to do the Change Management Foundation. I worked my way through those and finished those in late November which then moved me onto the recruitment side.

After that I moved into the recruitment process with Amelia as my helper and she got me my CV, she helped me find jobs, she helped with cover letters and interview prep and anything I needed. Then in mid-January after having a few interviews, I had a first interview with a company and then they wanted a second interview but I had surgery on my shoulder, so I had my final interview with the company I will be started to work with a few days after my surgery.

Sibylle Dreischer

Project Management Programme

Sibylle Dreischer

I started this course because I really enjoyed planning and managing part of a group project in my undergrad. During my project management studies I then developed a particular interest for software project management so I decided to get a Masters where I can now build on my skills and combine them with programming.

Ravinder Sahota

Project Management Programme

Ravinder Sahota

Before I started the program I was really sceptical about what it entailed. I wasn’t sure whether it would be value for money or whether I would enjoy it. But I knew one thing for sure, I really needed some formal qualifications, because I hadn’t done any in the last 20 years. So I took a leap of faith and for me I must say that it was the best thing I did for myself.

I would say yes, in my case 100% certainly, and I would highly recommend them. The one thing I would say to you is that I see it as a 50/50 partnership with them, because you do need to put that time in and have that commitment to invest in yourself.

Alar Allik

Project Management Programme

Alar Allik

Coming from 10 years in hospitality it was a very different area for me to go into, however, all the information was easily understandable and approachable online.

After finishing I sat my 3 exams, which luckily went really well. Then I started working with my recruitment assistants, I worked with Amelia and Jess who were both amazing and really supportive. Jess helped me throughout the long period of looking for a job, obviously due to Covid everything had pushed down a notch but Jess helped me with keeping my spirits up and also it was lovely to have chats with her whilst looking for different opportunities.

All in all it was an amazing experience, I have just recently managed to start a new job as a Customer Relations Executive in a world-wide brand so I’m really happy and I’m really thankful to all the team at ITonlinelearning. I hope that one day we can all work together again.

Gabriel Osanakpo

Project Management Programme

Gabriel Osanakpo

Last year when I started looking for a job, it took me time to realise the role I wanted to do, so when I made up my mind I was going to go into Project Management and I said I’d do my research. And because of this research on Google, ITonlinelearning was one of the first searches that came up. So I applied for a Project Management role and I got a call back and I was advised that in order to go into Project Management you needed some qualifications like the PRINCE2, Agile and then you choose between Change or Business Analysis.

The best part about this is because I finished the courses it gave me more insight into the Project role and what Project Managers are expected to do. And this is a very relevant role now, because with Covid now projects would still be rolling out, especially in change and introducing new processes to the system.

The best part of this programme is your CV transformation, I send in my original CV and gave details on what I like and my interests and in 2 weeks I got my CV back and when I saw the CV it was beautiful, and it gave me the confidence needed to apply for roles. I got my CV in December and by March I was able to land my first role with the help of my CV and support from Lauretta.

In the space of just over a year, I completed 3 certifications in Project Management including Agile, PRINCE2 and Change Management.

I recommend ITonlinelearning to anyone who wants to bolster their certifications and qualifications, or even just take a step into the project management industry.

Abigail Williams

I thought the courses were absolutely brilliant, they were explained so well and the course materials were great too. They give you a practice exam paper for every exam which you can do at any time and also mark yourself, which I found really helpful as you could see which areas you were stuck on. I passed all my exams first time!

I have just been offered a job as a Project Coordinator, which is my dream job and I’m so happy. I want to give a really special thanks to everyone at ITonlinelearning.

Jessica Green

Project Management Programme

Jessica Green

I signed up to do the project management course because I was looking for a career change. So I thought if I could get PRINCE2 and Agile under my belt that would give me a better chance at getting a job.

I was assigned a recruiter who was really positive, we went through what kind of jobs I was looking for and went through my CV. She also gave me useful information on interview tips and how to write a good cover letter, as well as a LinkedIn profile.

What I would say is if you are looking to go through this route, you do need to be very proactive yourself. ITonlinelearning aren’t there to find you a job, they’re there to support you.

Alan Benito

Project Management Programme

Alan Benito

I cannot praise the courses enough, I did PRINCE2 Foundation, AgilePM Foundation and Business Analysis Foundation and all three courses were really well structured, well explained and really helped you get a handle on the material.

I now have a job as an IT Project Manager, which is exactly what I was aiming for and exactly what I wanted. I can’t thank ITonlinelearning enough.

Eleanor Bodman

Project Management Programme

Eleanor Bodman

Throughout the entire experience everyone in the ITOnlinelearning team has been incredibly supportive and helpful. During my courses, my tutor was on hand to give me any help or advice. With his help I passed all my exams with flying colours.

I have since landed a position as a Project Analyst and I’m really excited to start my career in Project Management.

Emma Jones

Project Management Programme

Emma Jones

When I first found ITonlinelearning I realised that the initial ideas that were in my mind would have been sorted out and dealt with completely because ITonlinelearning specifically focus on project management and they do all kinds of packages. It was then that I realised that investing in a project management placement programme was the best way forward.

I’ve now been successful in my first proper role within a people management based role, which I’m really pleased with and I can’t wait to start. If I’m honest, if it weren’t for the help from everyone at ITonlinelearning and all of the encouragement I was given then I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Yvan Cambiati

I enrolled onto the Project Management course at the beginning of 2020.

Overall, my experience with ITonlinelearning has been great. The platform is really easy to use, the modules are composed of videos between 20 and 50 minutes, followed by a quiz that really helps you prepare for the exams.

Jonathan Clarke

Project Management Programme

Jonathan Clarke

Overall my experience with ITonlinelearning was very positive. The course material they give you is very easy to navigate and easy to use, it’s all done in video form. You are also provided with all the exam practice papers. I managed to pass all my exams pretty much first time.

After doing the recruitment process, I started off at the beginning of May and ended up landing a job at the very end of May, within three weeks I ended up getting three interviews from different companies. I managed to land the last job which is an entry-level role in an international professional services company and I start off with £22,000.

ITonlinelearning has been an amazing experience and it has helped me get into a sector which is pretty difficult to get into. I don’t think I would have been able to do it without their help.

Marta Garrod

Marta Garrod

9 months ago I was faced with a difficult situation, a threat of being made redundant and I didn’t know what to do. I started looking for new employment and re-evaluating my skills. I came across a course and it was advertising a Project Management course, so I spoke to a lady and started my journey.

I am really happy to say that I have found a placement within an IT company, and I will be a new Project Coordinator.

I have recently secured a role as a Project Coordinator with a construction company in London, through ITonlinelearning.

I have been learning through ITonlinelearning since this time last year on the Project Management Placement Programme. I did my PRINCE2 Foundation, AgilePM Foundation, Business Analysis Foundation, and Change Management Foundation, as well as their Project Management Fundamentals which is a really good course by the way.

I finally landed a job that 2 years ago I would never have dreamed I would have been in a position where I was getting a decent wage, good benefits and where I would be getting treated like a professional.

Levent Soruklu

Project Management Programme

Levent Soruklu

The training material has been great. The trainer uses very good analogies and the explanation style has definitely helped.

I have only had one interview, and that was enough. The first interview that I got, I secured the job.

Business Analysis

Obianuju Uchendi

Business Analysis Foundation

Obianuju Uchendi

I moved to the UK to obtain a Masters Degree in Business Administration, during this period I made the decision to go for a career change from Customer Relationship Management in the financial sector. I would say that the Covid pandemic informed my decision to start a career in the IT industry, more specifically seeing how industries have adapted quickly to new ways of working, new methods of engaging customers and a more versatile business approach.

This certification I earned helped me secure a role as a Business Analyst within a month, and I would like to add that the CV review sessions I had tremendously increased my chances of securing this role.

Brian Best

Business Analysis Foundation

Brian Best

I took up this course as I realised in recent times that I have got gaps in my knowledge. My work up until now has been years spent with requirement gathering, focusing on agile adoption and a few other aspects relating to requirements and some documentation without fully appreciating the scope of the role.

With the study of literature provided and guidance from Ryan and the rest of the team, I have been able to learn a whole lot more about the role. I have been able to study thoroughly, go through documentation and pass the exam first time.

I am actually moving into systems architecture and solution architecture. However, this course and the underlying principles that it has helped enforce and instil into me will go on and be a fantastic cornerstone for those skills. The knowledge that I have learnt, materials I will be able to keep and the additional membership to BCS will solidify my career prospects for the next 5 to 10 years and beyond.

They were great with getting me onto courses, getting me signed up, everything I needed, helped me with the finance team to set up monthly payments as I couldn’t pay all the fees outright. The team were really helpful, I had constant contact with my tutor who helped me with support and questions when I was preparing for my exams.

I have just secured my first IT job after spending the last few months getting help from ITonlinelearning. I will be working as a 1st Line Support Technician.

Adrian Raducan

My experience with ITonlinelearning was full of surprises. I have to say that in the beginning I was a bit sceptical about it, I thought I would get my courses and they would take my money, as they have good prices, and that would be it. But actually, it was a pleasant surprise to see that I have full support from the team, especially my tutor who was the one who was checking on my progress, always giving me advice and helping me when I was stuck.

When I finished with all my exams, it was a pleasant surprise for them to contact me to ask for my CV to send it to a recruitment company. They was playing a bit with my CV, I thought I had an amazing one but actually the one I received back had a better structure, very clean and opened doors.

I moved to England at the age of 14, which was really hard as I didn’t speak English. I started high school in Year 11, I had to do my GCSEs but I didn’t really do too well as I couldn’t speak any English. I couldn’t go to college to do the IT course that I wanted to, which I found difficult but I did two years in college and got my qualifications in English and as time went on I had been in and out of jobs, I couldn’t really find a place to fit in. In 2018, I decided to do a ITonlinelearning course which I was unable to complete in the first year but they were really understanding and gave me the option to extend the course for another year. I finished my course recently and got my qualification.

I would personally recommend it to anybody that’s looking to change their career or start their career in IT. It’s a great opportunity for learning and starting in IT even if you don’t have any knowledge. It’s been great, I’ve been doing it for two years, at first it’s really hard because the amount of material you have to go through but you eventually get there and get a job. Also, about my CV which was redone by ITonlinelearning, it’s amazing!

After I have been studying for a while, I have passed the exam in August and I have been given the opportunity to start working almost immediately.

You can study in your own time, you can take the exam whenever you want, you have an entire team of excellent and dedicated people that will support you and will help you all the way.

Keep studying, don’t stop and you will thank me later. I would like to encourage anyone thinking about doing this, don’t get discouraged. It will be a bit hard at the beginning but go right ahead and if you study hard you will not regret doing this.

I worked in Business Development and Branding in the Leisure industry, and last year in March my company closed for a few months because of Covid, and that gave me a few months to reflect on my career and what I wanted to do. I always wanted to move towards IT. I love anything to do with computers and understanding the whole computer and software environment.

I’m happy to say that now I’ve got my first IT role. So I’m very excited about that.

Course was well structured and easy to follow, the video lectures were both informative and engaging. Throughout the course I felt supported by my friendly tutor, who was quick to respond when I needed help and guidance.

Yes, I have been offered a Service Desk Analyst position at a large global security company.

I’m pleased that I’ve been given the opportunity to change the direction of my career, thanks to the help and support from everyone at ITonlinelearning. I would recommend them to anybody who wishes to take on a new challenge and achieve their goals, especially those who want to specialise in IT as I feel it’s a future-proof career move, particularly in these uncertain times.

The resources were really good, all of the videos that I used allowed me to pass the exams first time.

After about a month of recruitment, I managed to get employed at a wage I wasn’t expecting to get in a role really close to home.
