A diploma qualifies students for further learning in a specific field and enables them to work as a paraprofessional. This means that to become fully-qualified in your industry you need to gain a higher level of education.
Diplomas are a great entry level qualification if you wish to get started in a field. Some examples include advertising, fashion design or community services.
Under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), a diploma comes in at a level five out of the ten levels of senior secondary certificates of education that are currently recognised. The lowest being a Certificate I qualification and the highest being a doctoral degree.
