Extend your abilities beyond the classroom

Extended Project Qualification

This stand-alone qualification allows you to embark on largely self-directed projects and carries UCAS points, helping you to stand out to prospective universities.

Targeted to Key Stage 5, students can devise the subject of their qualification and this might have developed from an area of study, topical current affair or from a personal interest or hobby. The key to success is the ability to work autonomously and adapt a self-disciplined and independent approach to learning.

As a result of completing the qualification students will become more critical, reflective and independent learners; develop and apply decision making and problem solving skills; increase their planning, research, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills; learn to apply new technologies confidently and demonstrate creativity, initiative and enterprise.

The hardest part was deciding what I wanted to focus on for my EPQ - once that was done I really enjoyed researching, developing and fine tuning my project.
