New research by the National Foundation for Educational Research has found that universities strongly support the Diploma and view it as excellent preparation for higher education. All universities questioned said they would welcome applications from the first Diploma cohort in 2010. The national evaluation of Diplomas is being carried out by a team from NFER and University of Exeter. The evaluation is a large-scale and multi-strand project looking at how diplomas are being implemented, the views of key stakeholders; as well as how Diplomas impact on key Government targets.
