What is the purpose of the Diploma?
As an employer you will know that a young person with the C&BE Diploma has mastered essential skills in English, Maths, Information Communication Technology, communications skills, team-working and sector-related subjects. Employers will also know that a young person who has achieved a Diploma can apply their skills in work situations, and has an attitude which will give them success at work.
For young people the Diploma will enable them to further their education and earn a qualification that is suited to their individual learning style. It will provide young people with the skills and knowledge they need to progress into employment, training and further or higher education, together with a qualification which is recognised and valued by you, a sector employer.
The Specialised Diploma will:
- Provide a world-class learning experience for young people who want to work in the construction sector, through a blend of general education and applied learning within a coherent and motivating programme.
- Develop young people who have the essential skills and capabilities which employers are looking for.
- Help the effective transition of young people, from schools or college to further education or higher education, and into adult and working life.
