With some of our qualifications, students can gain additional UCAS points
Gold is the highest level of Arts Award, giving young people insight into life as an arts professional. They'll hone their existing artistic skills, acquire new ones, gain practical experience of different roles in the arts world and develop leadership expertise. Worth 16 UCAS points, it's also a great boost to university and job applications.
The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a nationally recognised and fully resourced qualification at Level 3. It carries up to 18 performance table points, or 28 UCAS points towards entry into higher education.
The EPQ is a single piece of work that requires a high degree of planning, preparation, research and autonomous working. This can be a 5,000 word dissertation, or an artefact or performance accompanied by a 1,000 word report. The EPQ provides a unique opportunity to build the project around a work experience placement, offering a clear line of sight to employment and training.
