What are the benefits of the Diploma?
Diplomas will tap into the best elements of current qualifications, including GCSEs and A levels, but will also incorporate new content and skills where required. That’s why it’s so crucial that employers are involved in the development of the Diploma.
Primary benefits of the Diploma:
- Employers meet their future skills needs and increase their productivity because young people are more effectively prepared for employment and further learning.
- Young people experience enjoyable, challenging and relevant programmes of learning, and are able to make better informed choices about future career options.
- A greater proportion of young people are able to progress to Higher Education.
- A greater proportion of young people are able to achieve level 2 (GCSE-standard) and level 3 (A-level standard).
