The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is designed to develop learners’ critical, reflective, problem-solving and independent learning skills, and supports pupils with the transition to higher education or the world of work. The EPQ is a unique study programme for which the learning material is entirely pupil selected and developed.
The pupil selects a topic in which they have a particular interest or passion, which will develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. It could be an in-depth review of a historical issue or the creation of a website. Pupils are assessed on their ability to plan, manage, complete and review their project.
