Endorsed Programmes are part of our accreditation services. The design of the programme which will usually be around one day’s training focuses on your organisational needs and the individual course
Endorsed Programmes are for Groups, Businesses, Communities and Organisations who want an accredited programme that does not require any summative or terminal assessment. It recognises the course, checking it meets several key quality criteria. It does not certify individual achievement. It’s aim is to support smaller chunks of training that focus on the input by the organisation and the team.
We encourage all centre to based their Development Awards upon external national standards, but
The design of the Programme, which is usually about one day looks at your development needs as a centre, what it is you want to achieve with your learning and what you want your learners to take away from the learning offered
Endorsed Programmes use the same building blocks for Learning Design as Prospect Qualifications and Development Awards. The major difference between Development Awards and Endorsed Programmes is that there is no formal summative or terminal assessment required in an Endorsed Programme. The learning and structure of the programme, the inputs, the resources, the team, are key features of recognition for your course for Prospect Endorsed Programmes. We focus on the organisation and the programme with regard to our External Quality Assurance not the specific assessment of individual students
Our quality checks in an Endorsed Programme focus on the organisational outcomes for the programme and the learning outcomes for the programme itself and not the assessment of individual students. As such evaluation of the programme by the participants and by the programme team is crucial, as this feeds into the External Quality Assurance for the programme applied by Prospect Awards CIC
