Week 6 - PMWC 🦈

Thinking about what this training means for you, revision and mock exam link.

Like Comment

Hello,

We are onto the final week of this PMWC online training workshop. It has been a pleasure working with you all so far. 

THIS WEEK

This week's video is here. If you can't watch it within Google Drive please try downloading it. There are three main parts to it:

1. What does this mean for your work

Learning PMWC and passing the exam is all very well and good, but it isn't that alone that will help you have an impact. One key exercise in this training workshop is reflecting on what you've learnt and thinking about how you will apply it to current and future work using this sheet. We've looked at it already in live sessions, but haven't filled out all the tabs. 

2. Mock exam

This one isn’t under exam conditions, but you can make it exam like if you want. You will be able to review your answers when you have finished. Click here to begin (ignore what it says in the video about an email). It says you need to contact me if you want to take it a second time, but I’ve changed the settings so you should not need to do this. 

3. Revision

Here is a document with revision ideas in. 

EXAM

The exam is on Wednesday 16th December 9 am GMT or 6 pm GMT. We've added a second time slot for the exam on Monday 14th December at 6 pm GMT. Use the normal zoom link for all exam sessions. I'll explain how it works in the session (it is very similar to the mock exam). 

 

If you have any questions or concerns about the exam please get in touch.   

With Wild Wishes,

Beth and Lucy

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

Hi Beth,


I have a query about a couple of the mock exam questions - Q18 & 19.


They seem to contradict each other, or am I interpreting them incorrectly? 


The answer to Q18 says that the PM should always be internal, but then the answer Q19 suggests that the PM can be either internal or external. Can you please clarify this?


These are the questions:


Which of the following statements is false? *


The Executive should always be internal


The Project assurance role can be internal or external


 An organisation carrying out work that is linked to the project work of the lead organisation can be considered a Partner


The Project manager should always be internal


Roles can be internal or external to the lead organisation accountable for delivering the project


Correct answer


The Project manager should always be internal


 


Which of the following can all be an internal or external roles? *


Governing body, Leader, Executive, Project manager


 Executive, Project assurance, Operations assurance


Executive, Project manager, Project support


Leader, Executive, Project assurance, Operations assurance


Project manager, Project support, Project assurance


Correct answer


Project manager, Project support, Project assurance

Hi Beckie, - I could see the contradiction at first - but then saw the first question is asking what statement is FALSE. So the PM having to be internal is false. 



The guidance is "Roles can be internal or external to the lead organisation accountable for delivering the project. The Governing body, Leader, and Executive roles should always be internal to ensure that the lead organisation has a sufficient level of control over the progress of the project for which it is ultimately accountable for delivering. All other roles can be assigned externally to a different organisation that has agreed to carry out work for the lead organisation".
