Information, Advice & Guidance

Prospects has a particular specialism in career guidance related training and qualifications. The Centre has been established for more than 15years with a professionally experienced and qualified team. We are an OCR Centre with a reputation for excellence. As well as the full qualification route we offer a range of customised approaches whereby learners can take as few or as many units as they wish. These may be in the form of ‘clusters’ of units or single ‘stand-alone’ units. Whatever your specific requirement we can tailor the assessment and learner support programme to suit your needs and circumstances.

  • Assessment plus underpinning knowledge and skills training through a workshop programme or online
