The EPQ is a project management qualification. It is the equivalent of half an A Level with an A* grade available. The project is chosen, planned and managed completely independently by the student. You have a choice of writing a 5000 word essay on a topic of your choice, or producing an artefact and writing a 2000 word supporting report outlining the project process. In both cases you will also complete a log book which records the process of planning and managing the project. Almost any topic that you are interested in can become a project.

How will it be delivered?

Project management skills are the most important part of the assessment of this qualification. A good final product is evidence that you have managed the project well, but the essay orartefact is not marked on its own.Marks are awarded for many aspects of project management including; Planning, Preparation, Research, Critical reading and thinking skills, Review and evaluation, Presentation skills
