Following consultation this summer, Ofqual is revising the regulatory arrangements for diplomas to allow awarding organisations to make their own decisions about whether to offer it as a qualification, based upon demand from schools and colleges. As a result, some awarding bodies have chosen to withdraw from the full diploma. Some awarding bodies will continue to offer the Principal Learning components as qualifications in their own right. These high quality vocational qualifications can support progression outside of the framework of the diploma and can be combined with other qualifications to meet the needs of a broad programme of study.
