Extended Project Qualification at Monks' Dyke Tennyson College

Course description

The Extended Project is the equivalent of an AS qualification. It allows learners to study a topic area of their choice. Learners should select a project topic that expands their learning in their own particular field of study, in a related area, or one that is relevant to their own personal interests.

Course content

There is a choice of four different types of project:

- A Dissertation: a theoretical written project on any topic presenting an argument, e.g. research into a biological or historical issue.
- An Investigation/Field Study: a practical investigatory project involving the collection of data, e.g. a scientific investigation or a geographical study.
- A Performance: development of practical skills resulting in a performance, e.g. performing music, drama or sport.
- An Artefact: making a painting or sculpture, creating a website, or solving an engineering problem.


Learners will be assessed on their ability to plan, manage, complete and review their project. The project is assessed by a tutor-assessor from Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College and externally moderated by Edexcel. There is no examination in this qualification.

Future opportunities

The Extended Project will support progression into further/higher education, training or employment by developing skills in key areas such as planning, research, project management and self-reflection.
