Earning a diploma in education is a practical first step toward becoming an educator. A diploma program will typically take one to two years to complete. During this time, a student will gain the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a professional career in education.

What is a Diploma in Education? A diploma in education helps prepare students to become teachers or work in education administration. Diplomas in education are typically tailored to specific age groups. Some programs prepare students to work in the field of secondary education while others may focus on adult education, medical education, early childhood education, and even educational management and leadership.  

Diplomas in education can help a student get from undergraduate to graduate study. A graduate or postgraduate diploma can be pursued after earning an undergraduate degree. Students often pursue an additional diploma in education in order to train as a specialist in their chosen field. For example, a professional graduate diploma in primary education will train students to become primary teachers specifically. Graduate diploma programs often lead directly to earning teaching certifications, some of which are recognized in many parts of the world. This allows teachers to teach at locales around the world, and also allow students to choose among universities located internationally to complete their diploma program.

The cost of a diploma in education will vary depending upon the chosen institution and duration of study. Prospective students should research a school thoroughly in order to ensure program suitability in terms of cost, program specialty, on the job training, certification requirements, and long-term career goals.

Individuals who earn diplomas in education will be equipped to become teachers and needed education professionals. Graduates may teach in their specialty field, such as in primary or secondary schools, or may become administrative professionals with many available career advancement opportunities.

A diploma in education can be earned from one of many international and online institutions. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
