Development Awards are part of our accreditation services. The design of the award, which can be of any size, looks at your learning and development needs as a centre.

Development Awards use the same building blocks for Learning Design as Prospect Qualifications.

Depending on the size of the Award we may require more.
This means you can develop and teach your award, apply the light touch assessment and deliver to your learners a focused quality learning experience. A Development Award is subject to both your Internal Quality Assurance and Prospect Awards External Quality Assurance process.
