Two consortia in Birmingham prepare to pilot the new Secondary Diplomas in Engineering and Creative and Media.
The new diplomas are being designed with industry support, equipping young people with the skills employers need, and the ability to go on learning throughout their lives.
To achieve this, the consortia are making links with employers, designing work experience placements and ensuring that the learning facilities for the diploma course are linked to industry.
The Engineering consortium take pupils to see what work experience will be like at the motoring manufacturer Land Rover. The pupils considering the Creative and Media Diploma take a tour around a Higher Education college, where they will be taught by industry professionals and use professional facilities.
Meanwhile the teachers from the Creative & Media consortium go backstage at the Birmingham REP to see what work experience could be like and to discuss a working experience via an online resource.
