Assessment

The PFQ is assessed via a 60 question multiple-choice exam which is 1 hour in duration.

Students complete an online booking form, which is available on our online learning platform and must provide a minimum of 5 working days’ notice.

More information on the APM Exam Only options.

Study Options

You can study the PFQ with Oxford College of Leadership and Management through 4 routes:

Virtual classes allow delegates to attend trainer lead online sessions as part of a small group. The classes use interactive software which allows participation and engagement with both your trainer and your fellow course participants. There is immediate feedback on all questions and the interaction leads to increased knowledge retention.

Your virtual class will be led by an experienced APM trainer who teaches the class, marks and feeds back on homework and will facilitate group work through breakout sessions. Virtual classes are ideal if your preferred study method is face-to-face learning, but social distancing measures do not allow you to attend in person.

Distance Learning

With our comprehensive online learning management system and a reputation for being the most supportive study centre, studying without classroom attendance has never been so easy. Oxford College of Management and Leadership attracts distance learning students from all over the world, not just the UK.

Whether you are choosing distance learning for geographical reasons or require ultimate flexibility with your learning, you will find www.oxcomlearning.com, the virtual learning environment for Oxford College of Management and Leadership, a fantastic resource for all of your learning needs. To receive a free trial for the course you are interested in, please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Through the online learning system, you will gain access to:

  • Recorded sessions for all course material
  • Podcasts
  • “Test your knowledge” resources
  • Sample assessments
  • Access to a support team via telephone, email, skype and live chat.

2 Day Classroom Training Course

The College’s two day face to face study option provides a classroom context for your studies where you will be taught course material by an experienced and dedicated tutor. This format grants you the security of covering the qualification content in a short timeframe, allowing you to feel fully prepared ahead of the examination.

All delegates will be enrolled onto the online learning system, www.oxcomlearning.com, for access to extra study and revision resources as well as the materials for the class.

In order to guarantee success, there may be some evening work to complete externally of the classroom before the final examination.

Courses will run from 9.30am – 5pm on both days.

In-house Course Delivery

If you have a group of delegates that require project management training, Oxford College of Leadership and Management can deliver APM qualifications at your place of business or at a venue of your choice.

We offer complete flexibility in the way that we run the programmes: lunchtime sessions, evening tutorials, and afternoon lectures that use both a structured and a drop-in surgery approach can be arranged in combination with the use of our online learning system. We can design a programme bespoke to you and your organisational culture, goals, and mission.

This option allows for the most efficient use time by negating the need for travel. It also allows us to orientate both theoretical and practical content and discussion towards your specific business or industry.

Please contact us at enquiries@oxfordpeg.com to discuss your requirements.
