Project Managers vs Project Administrators
Project Managers are individuals in charge of specific projects within an organisation. They are skilled at getting the best out of the people and projects that they oversee. The typical functions of a Project Manager are to plan, budget, oversee, and document all aspects of the specific project being worked on.
Project administration is the key to achieving success and maintaining control on any project. The Project Administrator contributes essential administrative support to the project team under the direction of a Project Manager. Typical duties of a Project administrator include all aspects of facilitating a project, convening meetings, collecting project information, taking meeting minutes, assisting with the developing of reports and presentations, and arranging training for project staff. In addition, the project Administrator participates in budget administration, keeping records, and assisting with forecasting project performance. Project Administrators can, and often do, advance into a Project Manager role.

What our past students said
“It was awesome for me to study with Academy of York, now I am fully loaded with vital projects information. Thumbs up guys. Studying with Academy of York was the best thing that has ever happened in my studying journey. The fees were affordable. I enjoyed studying at my own pace and the study group makes my studying easier and painless. In addition the textbooks were excellent, very informative and up to date. The tutor is an expert in the project management field and I appreciate the outstanding fanatical support that was provided. I have never seen or hear about a college that takes care and always keep contact with its learners like A.O.Y does. I felt important and got quick responses when I had questions. Thank you A.O.Y for allowing me to achieve my goal in a simple and less frustrating way.”
“The course gave me more knowledge about project management in my current position at work. I could study in my own time and I could pay my studies off monthly, where with other institutions you must pay the whole course before you start the course.”
