The Major Projects Leadership Academy (MPLA), sponsored by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), has been successful in its application for academic accreditation with the Association for Project Management (APM), giving the world class leadership programme an additional mark of quality and assurance that it is one of the best programmes available.
For the hundreds of MPLA graduates, they will now have completed an accredited course which recognises the breadth and depth of the content and how the MPLA supports their personal achievement, commitment and accountability in leading the delivery of major government projects.
Accreditation also means that MPLA is aligned to the APM’s Body of Knowledge 6th edition and it supports APM professional advocacy via the FIVE Dimensions of Professionalism.
The accreditation was awarded at a previous MPLA alumni event at the Institute for Government, which hosted the occasion. By happy coincidence, this was the same day that APM’s CEO Sara Drake and APM’s President David Waboso CBE, held a reception to celebrate being awarded the Royal Charter in the House of Commons at the invitation of Mr Speaker, The RT Hon John Bercow MP.
The next MPLA alumni event will be held in March 2018 (more details to follow soon). Email the IPA’s Profession team to find out more.
