Extended Project Qualification at Blackfen School for Girls

Course description

The EPQ allows each student to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project. Students must choose a topic, plan, research and develop their idea and decide on their finished product. We encourage creativity and curiosity. A project topic may be directly related to a student's main study programme, but should look beyond the specification. A finished product may take the form of a: research based written report, production* (eg charity event, fashion show or sports event etc), an artefact* (eg piece of art, acomputer game or realised design). *A written report must accompany these options. Students must also record their project process in their Production Log. The process of recording and completing a project is as important as the finished product. Both the Production Log and Product will be assessed. During the EPQ, students will learn to:manage – identify, design, plan, and complete a project (or task within a group project), applying organisational skills and strategies to meet their stated objectives, use resources/research – obtain and select information from a range of sources, analyse data, apply it relevantly, and demonstrate understanding of any appropriate connections and complexities of their topic, develop and realise – use a range of skills, including using new technologies, to solve problems, to take decisions critically, creatively and flexibly, and to achieve their aims, review – evaluate the outcome, including their learning and performance. EPQ Is equivalent to half an ‘A’ Level, graded A*-E Exam Board: Edexcel
