Exact figures for each DDP are not readily available. Each DDP has consulted with around 1,000 employers, meaning that for the first phase, 5,000 employers have participated in the development process. The same process is being used for the development of the phase 2 Diplomas, and this will involve similar numbers.

It must be stressed that this number is based on the number of employers that have actively responded on Diplomas via forms/email/ or one to one telephone conversations.

Does this answer the above question?
