EPQ Launch

As of 18th April Year 12 have been invited to enrol on the Extended Project Qualification.

They were informed in assembly of the two necessary requirements of completing the EPQ which are;
To complete the MOOC designed by the University of Bath entitled - “How to Succeed in Your EPQ: the Nuts and Bolts of Completing Your Project”.
The link to this MOOC has been put on to the Google Classroom HE room and can also be found here - https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/epq-success

This MOOC is free to access for 5 weeks and students will need to enrol immediately and complete the MOOC by 11th May, they must show evidence that they have completed the MOOC to enrol on the EPQ. Families may wish to consider upgrading to the full course which allows access to the course materials indefinitely and gives students a certificate once they have successfully completed the MOOC this costs £32 but is not a requirement.

Alongside the MOOC students will also have to submit a 300 word EPQ proposal detailing the title of their research (this could be a hypothesis that students are intending to test through primary research for example), and a clear outline of how they will go about their research in terms of Rationale, Methodology and Aims. The MOOC will support the formulation of their proposal. This will also need to be handed in via the Google Classroom HE room by 11th May.

There are possible routes to complete an EPQ and they are;

a research-based written report – 5000 WORDS
a production* (eg charity event, fashion show, sports event etc) – 1000 WORD WRITE UP
an artefact* (eg a piece of art, a computer game, a realised design).
*supported by a written report. – 1000 WORD WRITE UP

This work is all recorded in their Production Log and, finally, students deliver a presentation.

During the process, they develop as independent, reflective learners and acquire knowledge and transferable skills that are invaluable for further study and the workplace.
