Consultation on Changes to Diploma Regulation
We are consulting on changes to the regulatory requirements for the 14–19 Diploma.
This will only affect those that start this qualification from September 2012 – none of the proposed changes will have an impact on current students.
We intend to make the changes we set out in our consultation because the systems that underpin the operation of Diploma need to change. This consultation is about the way in which the qualification is delivered. We do not have any major concerns about the standard of the Diploma.
We will change our regulatory requirements based on the outcomes of the consultation. At this point awarding organisations will determine the ways in which they wish to continue to deliver this qualification or whether they want to continue to offer it under the new arrangements.
You can respond online using the form provided or by posting your responses to us.
The deadline for receipt of responses is 5pm 5th September 2011. Responses not submitted through the online platform can be returned by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: Consultation on Changes to Diploma Regulation, Ofqual, Spring Place, Herald Avenue, Coventry, CV5 6UB. Where responses are emailed please ensure you include the consultation title in the subject line.
