Extended Project Qualification
The EPQ qualification is equivalent to an AS-level and is seen as a valuable addition to a students learning portfolio by leading universities and employers. This is a free standing qualification that offers students a free project choice, so that they can explore in depth an aspect of a subject that they are studying or a topic in which they have a personal interest. The student has to show that they can plan, deliver and present an extended piece of level 3 work. The EPQ is studied independently by students with the support of a tutor in school. This is offered as a voluntary qualification for all Year 12 students or as a compulsory part of a package for some Year 12 students.
