Update on Diplomas

3 New Diplomas are Launched today, Science, Languages and the Humanities.

Mike Tomlinson is to sit on an Expert Advisory Group to shape new qualifications.
Ed Balls said: Diplomas could become the qualification of choice for young people.
Also mentioned was that the first review of 14-19 qualifications will now take place in 2013.

“It has been argued in the past that Diplomas could only be a success if A-Levels and GCSEs were no longer offered as stand-alone qualifications, and that we should use the planned 2008 review of A-Levels to signal the end of these qualifications.
