NEBOSH Diploma a hit with students

NEBOSH National Diploma enrolments have reached a record high with over 1,800 students enrolled for this qualification in the twelve months to April 2007; the highest number of enrolments on any Diploma-level qualification in NEBOSH’s history.   

Teresa Budworth, NEBOSH Chief Executive said “Pass rates for the National Diploma have been very encouraging.  Of those students enrolling in the first year of the Diploma’s operation who have so far attempted each assessment component, 69% have now been awarded their Diploma.  These students celebrate their success at the annual graduation ceremony.”   

Teresa continues “We believe the National Diploma is a very attractive option for those seeking Chartered Membership (CMIOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).  The unitised structure means that students can progress through the qualification at a pace to fit flexibly around their existing work commitments, spreading the workload and the cost.  Students have up to five years to complete each of the assessment components and achieve the qualification.  However, it is also possible to complete the Diploma in less than a year.” 

Course providers are accredited to offer the Diploma at more than 60 locations throughout the UK in a variety of course formats, including day release, block release, evening only courses and distance and blended learning.  In England, as a QCA-accredited qualification, the Diploma is eligible for funding from the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) under section 97 of the Learning and Skills Act 2000.  This means that course costs at publicly-funded providers may be subsidised; assisting those students who are funding their own professional development.
