The Project Administrator brings essential administrative support with typical duties that include all aspects of facilitating a project, convening meetings, collecting project information, taking meeting minutes, assisting with developing of reports and presentations, arranging training for project staff and participating in budget administration, recordkeeping and forecasting project performance.

”I had the most amazing time while doing my Advance Project Management course, in the beginning it was difficult to adjust since I work full time knock at five sometimes late, however, with the help of my coordinator I was challenged to think out of the box. She was so supportive sometimes I would pass with average marks she will return my script demanding that I can do more/ better. I am now running my projects with confidence and hope to move into a new job.
