About the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 EPQ

What is a Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)?

The Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Extended Project Qualification allows learners to study a topic area which extends their learning in a chosen area of study, as a standalone qualification. Learners select one of the four units. Each of the four units offers a different type of project outcome: a dissertation, an investigation/field study, a performance or an artefact. Learners will be assessed on their ability to plan, manage, complete and review their project, and will be assessed using IEMA’s sustainability skills map.

Why study an EPQ focused on sustainability or climate change?

Studying an EPQ in sustainability or climate change will allow learners to dive deep into the latest trends and technologies that are shaping the future of the planet. They can learn about exciting new developments in renewable energy, sustainable transportation, green buildings, and more!

Learners can research real-world problems that affect people and the planet by developing creative solutions to complex environmental issues, such as climate change, pollution, food supply, fashion, waste and energy.

This qualification can demonstrate to universities and future employers that the learner has a passion for sustainability or the environment and has developed the skills required for university-level study or career next steps.
