About Us


The Management Skills Centre (MSC) was  established in April 2008.  It is an accredited APM Training Provider.

The company's founder, Andrew Scott , has over 30 years experience of training and management.  Prior to setting up the MSC he was founding Director of Management Studies at University College London (UCL) where he established a programme of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. After 15 years, these were taken by over 1000 students per year. His aim was to equip students for future employment through provision of challenging and practical courses and he regarded management of projects as central to this vision.  

In 1999, he launched a successful programme of APMP courses open to those outside the university; this was accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM).  

Now he uses this university experience to develop and expand his ideas within the commercial sector - to provide the right mix of theory and practical application to make the courses especially useful.
