EPQ is a stand-alone qualification. Students may choose to take the Extended Project Qualification as an extension from studies for any other qualifications at Level 3. The Extended Project will develop and extend from one or more of the student’s study areas and/or from an area of personal interest or activity outside their main programme of study. It will be based on a topic chosen by the student(s) and agreed as appropriate by the centre.  


The student will:
identify, design, plan and complete an individual project, applying a range of organisational skills and strategies to meet agreed objectives
 • obtain, critically select and use information from a range of sources; analyse data, apply it relevantly and demonstrate understanding of any appropriate linkages, connections and complexities of the topic
• select and use a range of skills, solve problems, take decisions critically, creatively and flexibly, to achieve planned outcomes
 • evaluate outcomes both in relation to agreed objectives and own learning and performance. Select and use a range of communication skills and media to present evidenced outcomes and conclusions in appropriate format.
  The student will develop an idea for a project that they wish to carry out and discuss their ideas with a supervisor. Students will then:
• carry out research to enable them to sufficiently develop project aims and objectives to make a formal project proposal
• document their planning and research within the Production Log
• meet with the supervisor at specified meetings to discuss the project process and issues
• carry out the project by achieving the aims and objectives they set themselves
• prepare and give a presentation about the project product and process (including a question and answer session)
• evaluate the project process
• submit evidence for assessment (production log and project product)
