PRINCE2® Foundation – 3 day course. Typically course delegates book both the Foundation and Practitioner modules in the same week sequentially on-premise or the following week live streamed. However People Learning provides three options to allow for more flexibility. Whilst we do highly recommend (based on our experienced trainers' recommendations) that delegates wishing to take both the Foundation and Practitioner qualification do not leave too big a gap between the courses we do offer THREE booking options for your convenience:

Foundation and Practitioner Exams - What to Expect?
For On-premise training, The Foundation exam will usually take place on the Wednesday, typically in the afternoon - and will be a multiple-choice assessment.

The Practitioner exam will be held on the Friday and will be based on multiple choice questions, as well as case study scenarios.

In January 2017 the owners of PRINCE2®, AXELOS, announced the upcoming arrival of updated PRINCE2® guidance and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. Together, these form PRINCE2® 2017 and represent the first major update to PRINCE2® since 2009.

Why was PRINCE2® updated?
The success of PRINCE2® lies in its compilation of proven best practices in project management taken from academics, business professionals, and consultants across the years. Since its creation, at least two million PRINCE2®exams have been sat in over 150 countries worldwide. This is a clear testament to the value of PRINCE2® to individuals all over the world.
However, we must all recognize that the business world is always changing, and even something as tried and tested as PRINCE2® is not completely resistant to change. As ever with PRINCE2®, the update has been a collaborative approach amassing feedback from a wide range of PRINCE2® Practitioners; the people best positioned to assess PRINCE2® through their continued application of the method across a range of working environments. This feedback has resulted in a thorough, evolutionary, update of PRINCE2®.
What were the main changes to PRINCE2®?
The PRINCE2® update saw a new edition of the PRINCE2® manual, plus updated training materials and Foundation and Practitioner examinations. These will be launched in mid-2017. This update does not change any of the fundamentals of the method – PRINCE2® ’s overall structure of seven principles, themes and processes remains unchanged. But the emphasis and treatments within these have shifted.
The main changes to the guidance are a greater emphasis on the following areas:
• tailoring PRINCE2® to the needs of organizations and project environments;
• the principles that underpin PRINCE2® ;
• a greater link between the themes and principles;
• the restructuring of the ‘Themes’ guidance to accommodate specific examples of tailoring;
• the practical application of the method and guidance, with numerous examples, hints and tips.
PRINCE2® is a wealth of project management knowledge and Best Practice that needs to be conscientiously tailored to suit each individual PRINCE2® and their organization. The updated manual, training and examination will help you tailor PRINCE2® effectively to ensure you get the most out of the certification. Make sure you have the latest edition.
PRINCE2® has always been rooted in real life experience. This update was intended to be trusted to provide practical, authoritative and relevant guidance to anyone managing a project in today’s environment.
What does the update mean for me?
If you are a qualified PRINCE2® Practitioner, under the old format and / or your certification has expired, we would highly recommend familiarising yourselves with the revised content available or to understand the updates in fine detail. There is also an FAQ sheet available to answer any specific questions you might have. You may, in any case be due to renew the Practitioner qualification.
This important update reinforces PRINCE2® ’s unrivalled reputation for Best Practice in project management. As always, the focus is on helping individuals and organisations across a range of job roles, sectors and geographies, to successfully manage projects.
Due to Covid-19 pandemic,all our current PRINCE2® courses are approved to be held live-steamed online to ensure the welfare of both trainer and participants. This has been done in the past and has worked very well. This format is here to stay however we anticipate re-introduction of hybrid and on-premise training as well in the Spring of 2021 if it is safe to do so. Our own risk assessment in 2020 for accelerated opening of adult training centres on-premise showed that even with precautions there would be unacceptable risk and undue stress, despite authorities allowing it not just where we are based but across the globe... but unfortunately with significant risk for adult learning centres , sometimes with serious consequences. We do care deeply that individuals are different however and we make sure all have the necessary connectivity and guidance before the live streamed sessions start, individual attention, smaller groups and a format more suitable for live streamed training. There are of course benefits as well. Apart from the obvious safety aspects, no parking and transport hassles, your own favorite refreshments at home and more flexibility over when to take examinations etc.
