Working, Learning and Growing together

“The power of education extends beyond the development of skills we need for economic success. It can contribute to nation-building and reconciliation.” – Nelson Mandela

our Method

Our learning design model here at Prospect Awards is based upon the Design Council’s Double Diamond but extends it in a unique and innovative way by blending it into a Learning Design and Development process that complements our work.    Our Design Process is utilised for all our work.  Prospect Awards Learning Design and Development model is supported by integrating key aspects of work by the Open University Learning Design Initiative and the Institute of Learning Innovation at Leicester University

Our Story


Learning Design

We sat down and thought what we could do – and then decided a Learning Design and Development Agency focused around Community, Learning and Governance, using qualifications and accreditation of learning to aid a sustainable journey and that a Community Interest Company would be the best format for us to achieve our goals together.

Community Development

We came together with a set of ideas about how we can contribute to Community Development Learning, and how we can use the Community Development Standards and our expertise in accreditation, governance and community development and engagement to aid communities, business, government practitioners and volunteers with our Learning Design and Development Agency

Partnerships and Expertise

We are a regulated national awarding organisation, with qualifications on the national framework and we design and award qualifications from Entry to Level 5.   We are partnered with Aim Awards to offer over 200 additional qualifications and we hold the Ireland franchise for a cloud-based Governance Management system and Anna our Director for Communities authored the UK Community Development National Standards together with the International Community Development Standards.
