NAJ to Launch New JET Diploma at Jewellery & Watch

31 January 2018

During 2017 the NAJ launched a new JET certificate, featuring modules designed for students working within manufacturing, design or back office as well as retail. Now it’s the turn of the JET Diploma.

The Diploma (formerly JET2) is the next step for students who have completed the JET Certificate.  Existing Diploma modules have been updated and new modules such as exhibiting, manufacturing, design and silversmithing have also been incorporated, enabling students or the employer to select the modules most relevant to them. 

Students also have the option to complete the full Diploma or study modules on an individual basis, therefore giving employers and students a more flexible approach. For the full Diploma, all of the core modules and seven of the optional modules will need to be completed.  A research project and assignments based on each of the optional modules selected form part of the qualification.

Core modules include

  • History of Jewellery
  • Gold, platinum, palladium, silver
  • Diamonds
  • Gemstones
  • Hallmarking
  • Better Business

Optional modules include

  • Design
  • Watches
  • Diamond treatments and simulants
  • Service and Repairs
  • Valuations
  • Display
  •  Law
  • Pawn Broking
  • Manufacturing
  • Exhibiting
  • Silversmithing
  • Security

Jet courses are written by industry experts and are City and Guilds accredited. Students can study online and are supported by personal tutors.  NAJ members also benefit from preferential rates. To find out more about the new JET Diploma, come and meet the Education team at Jewellery &Watch, located in Hall 17 on stand U22 – W23.
