Extended Project at Droitwich Spa High School
The extended project is a single piece of work of a student’s choosing that requires evidence of planning, preparation, research and autonomous working. It will be available as a stand-alone qualification for A Level students and as a qualification that will be taken as part of a Diploma. An extended project is about the size of half of an A Level.
The aim of the extended project is to strengthen programmes of study for 16 to 19 year olds, testing a wider range of skills. It will provide continuity between A Levels and Diplomas at level 3 as it can be part of both a traditional A Level study programme and a compulsory part of the Diploma programme. An extended project could be, for example:
* A design
* A report with findings from an investigation or study
* A dissertation presenting an argument
* An artefact
* A performance
Students might use their project at interview stage for higher education and/or in their personal statement on the UCAS form.
