News Release - Prospects selected as finalist in 2014 Education Investor Awards
Prospects, the education, employment and training company, has been shortlisted for two awards in the 2014 Education Investor Awards; Education Business of the Year and Education Content Provider of the Year.
During difficult trading circumstances, Prospects has continued to grow and has also retained key contracts over the last year which has also been reflected in its turnover. These are some of the reasons that Prospects has been selected as a finalist for the Education Business of the Year Award.
The Education Content Provider of the Year Award shortlisting is for ProspectUS, the primary schools curriculum designed and developed by Prospects Improve. It is a new curriculum model written in response to the changes introduced by the Department for Education to the primary curriculum and though the new curriculum does not formally launch until September, ProspectUS already selling well in schools.
Vincent McDonnell, Managing Director of Prospects, said: “Being shortlisted for two Education Investor awards is an extraordinary achievement. At Prospects we lead on changes in the education sector by building on our strengths and recasting services through creating new ways of working, innovative partnerships and creation of mutual companies. By diversifying our services within education, training, employment and social support we have a secure base to respond to the needs and pressures of the education market place. Last year was our most successful year ever, in terms of turnover, so being shortlisted for these awards are great recognition of that and a testament to colleagues hard work and commitment.”
This year has been the most competitive for the Education Investor Awards, with submissions up by more than 20% on 2013. The finalists’ entries will now be passed to an independent judging panel, who will select a winner in each category. The winners will be announced at a black-tie dinner at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, on Thursday 13 November.
