Studying Archaeology Through the New Humanities and Social Sciences Diploma
From September 2011 there will be a new qualification offered by some schools and colleges. The Humanities and Social Sciences Diploma will be taught for the first time. With the diploma system you will be able to study for a larger combined award that can be studied at three levels:
Foundation / Level 1: This level will be comparable to the achievement of GCSE grades D to G and the NVQ level 1.
Higher / Level 2: This level will be comparable to the achievement of GCSE grades A* to C and the NVQ level 2.
Advanced / Level 3: This level will be comparable to AS and A levels.
The exact specification of the Humanities and Social Sciences Diploma is still under development. The CBA believe that archaeology offers a great resource for teaching both the humanities and social sciences and therefore support the inclusion of archaeology within the new specification.
As more details become available about the Diploma we will post them here in order to keep you up to date.
