Course overview

People often think the only way to work in the tech industry is to be a coder, designer or developer. This is not true. There is a huge demand for people, like you, with transferable skills to make sure that digital projects stay on track and on time.  You’ll lead on communications to  keep teams, clients and stakeholders happy. 

In this course we will demonstrate the core skills that will help you take your first steps into the tech industry, covering industry-standard concepts such as Agile project management, Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and the project lifecycle. As well as learning strong communication and presentation skills to help you up your game as a digital project/account manager.
