Extended Project Qualification at Chelsea Academy

Course description

The Extended Project will develop and extend from one or more of the learner's study areas and/or from an area of personal interest or activity outside their main programme of study. It will be based on a topic chosen by the learner(s) and agreed as appropriate by the centre. It will involve extended autonomous work by the learner and require a total of 120 guided learning hours.

Learners are required, with appropriate supervision, to choose an area of interest, draft a title and aims of the project for formal approval by the centre. Plan, research and carry out the project, deliver a presentation to a specified audience, provide evidence of all stages of project development and production for assessment.

Future opportunities

The EPQ allows students to embark on largely self-directed projects. By taking responsibility for the choice and design of an individual project (or an individual role in a group project) students become more critical, reflective and independent learners.

They develop and apply decision-making and problem-solving skills, increase their planning, research, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills learn to apply new technologies. They also confidently demonstrate creativity, initiative and enterprise.
