Bringing your learning to life The Diploma – Introduction Slide. Diplomas offer students theoretical and practical learning with clear progression to Higher Education and employment. The strength of this qualification lies in the partnerships between schools, colleges, employers and Higher Education. By working together we can engage and motivate more young people and make their learning more relevant to their lives.
