Extended Project Level 3

WJEC Extended Project

Our Level 3 Extended Project Qualification is available to learners in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, British Forces Overseas centres and British Overseas centres as a stand-alone qualification. It is a one-unit qualification that is internally assessed and externally moderated. Centres have the option of using the free online e-submission platform for the Extended Project.

The Extended Project may be developed from one or more of the learner's study programmes or from a topic of personal interest. The Extended Project may be based on a variety of formats and contexts, e.g. dissertation, field investigation, artefact, design or a performance. Learners are supported throughout the process by a supervisor and a teaching and learning programme.

The qualification offers centres flexible timetabling options. Learners will have more choice over their studies than ever and an opportunity to develop useful transferable skills, highly valued in higher education and employment. The flexible nature of the qualification also encourages cross-curricular activities providing opportunities for collaboration between faculties and departments within the centres.

The Extended Project qualification will be available for the June series only for all centres.
