Responding to the needs of Lifelong Learning Network (LLN) partners in relation to understanding the complex curriculum content of the new Advanced Diplomas and what it means for student progression, has been a focus for the Diploma team at Linking London since Summer 2008. In this e-Chapter, we discuss the support package that we have been working to put in place for LLN partners engaged in supporting Advanced Diploma learners in FE and HE and will review pertinent issues that have emerged. We discuss our work in setting up the Diploma Delivery Partnership group to support 14 – 19 staff in related London boroughs, support for HEIs in developing the content of UCAS entry profiles to take account of Diploma requirements and the development of bespoke staff development events. We will also describe the role that we have played in highlighting potential progression issues to Government and the content of several publications we have produced designed to assist with the early understanding of this new qualification.
The report focuses on the introduction of the Diploma in their second year of operation. The quality of Diploma provision was mixed in the 21 consortia visited. The main strengths were in the 'principal learning', the main subject content of the Diplomas, where learners were often well-motivated and made good progress in lessons. However, there were weaknesses in the links between 'principal learning' and the other components of the qualification, particularly functional skills, and additional and specialist learning.
This publication is aimed at learners currently studying the 14-19 Advanced Diploma. It gives an introduction to HE, and gives guidance on planning, applying and joining HE.
This paper presents the findings from two questionnaire surveys on 5 institutions in the Linking London area with the new Diploma provision for the first two years. It gives some indication of the way that students on the ground are experiencing this new qualification.
