Q. My City & Guilds registration has just expired, can I still register with City & Guilds to take my Diploma 7763 -03? 

A. Yes, you can register with us provided you do so by the beginning of August 2017. After this, the qualification is being withdrawn by City & Guilds. You can register for the 7763 - 02 Level 2 Introductory Certificate, the 7763 -03 level 3 Certificate and the 7763 -03 Level 3 Diploma.

Q. If the Diploma qualification is being phased out, what is the point of taking it? 

A. City & Guilds have introduced a newer qualification that is longer and more in depth than the current 7763 - 03. This means that it is more expensive and takes longer to complete. The current qualification is still recognised as a high level qualification and will save you money while still allowing you to qualify. But don't hang about this opportunity is only available until the beginning August 2017.
