Prospect Awards Secures Regulated Status

We are delighted to announce Prospect Awards is now a Regulated Awarding Organisation regulated by CCEA the regulator for Northern Ireland.

Prospect Awards CIC is now able to offer qualifications up to and including Level 5 on the RFQ, equivalent in level to  Diploma in Higher Education.  We will be updating this page on a regular basis with our plans but we are aiming to bring two new qualifications to Northern Ireland based on our research and linked to the National Standards in Community Development, the International Standards in Community Development and the Scottish Standards for Community Engagement.

Level 2 Award – Introduction to Community Engagement

Level 3 Award – Community Engagement Practice

These two Awards will be the foundation of a suite of qualifications in this area to follow in the next few months.  If you wish to be involved in their development, head along to our Qualification Design Group on Linked In and look out for our Prospect Launch Videos on YouTube and our ‘Prospect Heads Up Webinars’.  Details to follow soon.

We are very excited!
