Used across the UK Government and extensively across public and private sector organisations globally, PRINCE2 is recognised as the UK ‘Best Practice’ model for project management.

Bristol - Armada House
With easy access from Bristol Temple Meads station our unique Learning Centre is spacious, comfortable and inspiring. Armada House provides professional training facilities and Wifi is available throughout the building.
Bristol Temple Meads train station is only a short distance away. Buses and taxis to the City Centre or Baldwin Street are frequently available, although when weather permits it is a pleasant walk of approximately 20 minutes. The most direct route on foot is to turn right at the end of the station approach, then walk about 50 metres. Just before the roundabout, cross the road using the pedestrian crossing. You will then see a second pedestrian crossing which you should also cross. Turn right. Stay on the pavement and this will take you off at the next exit from the roundabout into Victoria Street. Walk the length of Victoria Street and over Bristol Bridge, which crosses the river. Turn left into Baldwin Street. Continue past the first left turn (Queen Charlotte Street). The next left turn after Queen Charlotte Street is a pedestrianised cobbled street called Telephone Avenue. Armada House is the last building on the right.
