Review of CCN Diplomas

Diplomas were a recent set of education qualifications introduced to the 14-19 age group that were to be delivered jointly between school and FE college consortia. City College Norwich established several consortia with various schools in the region and several Diploma programmes were developed and delivered by these consortia. This project seeks to review all aspects of these Diplomas, from a review of scale of delivery and uptake to reviewing retention and achievement and making comparison benchmarks with more traditional programmes, whilst also collecting the experiences and perceptions from staff working within these consortia.

The Research Centre at City College Norwich is seeking a researcher with a knowledge and understanding of the education sector, can use quantitative and qualitative methods, is conscientious and willing to be flexible for a fulltime, short term post.
