Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

The Extended Project Qualification is part of the government’s new initiative to stretch and challenge young people in an area of work that they are already studying or in which they have a particular interest.

The finished project can be a written report, a performance, a piece of art, a community project, a CD or DVD, or even computer software.

This level of choice and flexibility means students are engaged and motivated, and gain valuable research and project management skills along the way.

Students have to:

  • Choose a topic to study
  • Complete a production log to document the project process
  • Plan, research and carry out their project
  • Prepare a project on the outcome.
