PDA in Service Design (Online)
The Professional Development Award in Service Design covers the core skills, tools and mindsets you need to service design powerful interventions for complex issues. You’ll be taken on a journey, a process spanning four learning units (Tools & Methods, User Research, Co-Design and a Service Design Project), over five months with 17 live session & interactive content. We connect theory and practical applications through a mixture of experiences, live classrooms, watch anytime videos, teamwork, mentoring and case studies.
It's creative learning for changemakers, it’s about learning by doing. We believe the ability to question, be curious & interrogate are as important as knowing the methods & mapping the journeys.
