Lower secondary education diploma


Explanation:
There is no equivalent of this in the UK, because the whole system is broken down differently. But this is an internationally recognized term for your licenza.
For the GCSE question, please post a separate question :)

neutral  Lara Barnett: This is a possibility but "diploma" is never normally used for general school-level education.// I would say "certificate".

certificate of lower secondary education


Explanation:
For this level of education in UK, we would only really use the term "certificate" to describe the qualification awarded.

Also, just for info, this should also not be capitalised because it stands as a description of the the award/proficiency given that our systems are not similar.

Additionally, you could even add a gloss to describe how this level of learning is equivalent to British school years 7,8 and 9.

eg. "certificate of lower secondary education (i.e UK school years 7, 8 & 9)."

"Wolsey Hall has designed its Lower Secondary homeschooling courses (Years 7, 8 and 9 in the UK – typically ages 11-13) so that each “Year” takes 9 months, the equivalent of “an academic year”. We believe this suits the capabilities of most young people being home-schooled. ".

Extra note:
Also, in UK we do not generally use terms such as "graduation" or "diploma" for this level/age group of education, while many other countries do. It would be understood, but is not generally used by English speakers.

The certificate of lower secondary education is issued to a pupil who has acquired lower secondary education.
