Why were the Diplomas developed?

Higher Education (HE) and employers feel that not all the skills necessary to be successful in HE and the workplace are being developed in the current education system.

The Diplomas are a way of bridging that gap by combining the best elements of academic and vocational qualifications. This produces a new way of learning that will better engage many students as they learn in the context of their area of interest.

How were they developed?

Unlike A Levels and GCSEs, the content of the Diploma has been developed in conjunction with industry and HE. The worlds of business and higher education were engaged with on both a national and local level and were asked what skills were important to them. The Diploma will be the vehicle to deliver these.


Who are they for l.jpg
Who are they for?

Everyone! They are a new way of learning!

NOT a new standard of learning.

A new way

Taking the best elements and concepts from academic and vocational qualifications, the Diploma is a rigorous and demanding qualification. It is applied in the context of what happens in the real world of industry.

How is the Diploma taught?

The Diploma is a combination of academic and practical learning taught in a project based system with industry employers.

+

Practical

Employers give real world briefs for learners to work on, ensuring the academic learning is experienced in a work-related context. This also develops teamwork and communication skills as learners work together on a brief.

Academic

Both teachers and industry employers are involved in teaching the creative process.


Slide18 l.jpg

Who should do this Diploma?

Level 1 / 2

Level 3

Students who want a more work-related style of learning but don’t want to specialise in a specific area.

Students who want to develop their thinking skills within business led qualifications. Anyone who wants to move into HE and follow a course of study that values a strong broad sector specific base. Anyone who wants to gain employment with skills both desired and needed within today’s workplace.


Slide19 l.jpg

Who should NOT do this Diploma?

Anyone who thinks a Diploma is easy!

The Diploma has been designed to be academically rigorous and to stretch and challenge students at all levels. It is definitely not purely a qualification for those at risk of disengagement.

If you want to move into a specific area of a known industry you might be better doing a specific vocational qualification, if these are available.

Alternatively, if you know what course you want to study at University and they are requesting specific entry requirements then you should check what they are.
