The C&BE Diploma, along with four other diplomas, will be available for teaching from September 2008. We need schools, colleges and others to begin to consider now what this will mean for them. Schools, colleges and others will be expected to deliver Diplomas as part of a collaborative local partnership, rather than acting independently.
Those local partnerships who are interested in offering any of the first five Diplomas from September 2008 will need to pass through a Gateway which will assess their readiness to deliver.
More detailed information on the Gateway, can be found at www.dfes.gov.uk/14-19/. This explains how the process will work, and how schools, colleges and others can express an interest in taking part.
The specific C&BE Diploma Gateway guidance document is available below and will give support for Consortia completing the Self Assessment documentation as part of Gateway process.
