The Alliance of Sector Skills Councils

14-19 Diplomas

SummitSkills worked in conjunction with partner Sector Skills Councils to develop two new diplomas for 14-19 year olds. 

  • Construction & the Built Environment and Engineering Diplomas

These qualifications provide a chance for young people to find out about and develop skills of use in broad industry sectors before they make a commitment to a specific career. 

Many employers, as well as representatives of schools, colleges and universities, made valuable contributions towards the initial development of outline content, to ensure the qualifications will meet industry needs. Employer input will continue to be important to ensure learners have access to appropriate work related learning, including work experience.

14 - 19 Diplomas are delivered by a number of educational organisations including schools, colleges and Univeristy Technical Colleges. For more information about University Technical Colleges click here.
