The article offers information on the five diploma courses that have been launched in England in 2009. These courses include business administration, environmental studies, product design and hair and beauty programs. Overview of the 2008 results, involving the initial five diplomas, is presented. It was revealed that a high number of teenagers who took the diploma courses were enrolling to another two-year programs. A study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development indicated that many human resource managers support the qualifications.
