Extended Project Qualification at St Aidan's and St John Fisher's Associated Sixth Form

Course description

Students will have the opportunity either in Year 12 or Year 13 to take part in the AQA Level 3 Extended Project Qualification. The programme is designed to increase the breadth and depth of study in their selected subject area, and to gain essential skills for University or Employment applications. We are aware that competition for University places is increasing, and that predicted A Level grades alone will not guarantee an offer. By offering this programme we hope to strengthen our students’ applications and prospects.

The Extended Project gives students more control over their studies than ever before. Students can choose to explore a further aspect of a subject they are studying, or another subject, or simply choose a topic in which they have a personal interest. The stages of the project are:

* Choose a topic to study
* Complete a production log to document the project process
* Plan, research and carry out the project
* Prepare a presentation on the outcome.

The finished project can be a written report, a performance, a piece of art, a community project, a CD or DVD, or even computer software. This level of choice and flexibility means students are engaged and motivated, and gain valuable research and project management skills along the way. Students will have regular contact with their supervisor to support them through the project.
