OCR's Extended Project aims to inspire, enthuse and motivate students by providing learners with the skills that Higher Education institutions look for through the encouragement of independent study. This gives students the freedom to work in their own way to complete a project based either on a subject they’re studying or in an area of personal interest.
The qualification is ideal for improving transferrable skills such as planning, research, analysis and evaluation as part of either an academic or vocational curriculum, through the management of a skills-based assessed assignment.
- Improve learning and performance as critical, reflective and independent students.
- Develop and apply decision-making and problem-solving skills.
