Extended Project Qualification at Queen Elizabeth High School
An EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) allows a 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. An EPQ encourages 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, a computer game or realised design).
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.
To complete a project students need to:
- Choose an area of interest and draft their project title and aims.
- Plan, research and carry out their project.
- Keep a production log of all stages of the project production, reviewing and evaluating their progress.
- Complete the project product.
- Prepare and deliver a presentation.
- Review the outcome of their project and presentation.
