Project Management Fundamentals

Project Management Fundamentals

The CCA Project Management Fundamentals workshops have been designed for CCA member VET Managers and other CCA member staff to assist in building their capability to manage educational projects. Consultation with CCA’s VET Managers in December 2019 determined that developing project management skills across key roles was an essential foundation for future work.

Why is Project Management Important?

  • Strategic alignment: project management is important because it ensures what is being delivered is right, and will deliver real value.
  • Leadership: project management is important because it brings leadership and direction to projects.
  • Clear focus & objectives: project management is important because it ensures there is a proper plan for executing on strategic goals.

The Workshops

Due to the developing Coronavirus, CCA has cancelled its planned 18 March Sydney workshop, and will monitor the situation regarding the planned workshop in Tamworth on 12 May 2020, at Tamworth Community College.

Participation is open to project leaders of all member organisations. Please consult your organisation’s VET Manager or CEO prior to registering for the workshops to ensure that it is appropriate for you.

This will be led by project manager training specialist, Tim Pearson, co-facilitated by Michelle Simpson, CEO of Tamworth Community College.

The Project Management Fundamentals workshop will incorporate the key project steps of:

  • Defining
  • Developing
  • Executing & monitoring
  • Finalising
  • Reviewing

Participants will be asked to consider, and to bring with them, a project relevant to their work, aligned to  sector or organisational priorities, such as: developing trainer delivery or digital skills, resource development, compliance strategies, validation skills, team building, rolling out a new LMS system, implementing a digital media strategy or implementing an MOU or contract agreement.

All participants will receive resource materials. Lunch, morning and afternoon teas will be provided.
