Level 2 Higher Project Qualification (7992)
Changes for 2021 There are no planned changes to the Level 2 Higher Project Qualification for 2021 following Ofqual's consultation
Withdrawal of January entry series after 2021
The last time schools can enter for L1 and 2 Projects in the January exams series will be January 2021. Students can still enter in the summer series.
Our Higher Project Qualification specification has been updated for teaching from September 2020, with first assessment in May 2021. We have updated the specification to help you manage project qualifications in your school and ensure your students are prepared for their Higher Project Qualification.
Our Higher Project Qualification allows students to discover the joys of independent learning, take responsibility for their own study and develop new life and study skills.
The Higher Project can be offered alongside other level 2 or level 3 qualifications (including vocational qualifications) as a stand-alone qualification. You can use the Higher Project to extend and develop your students’ learning and to introduce students to project qualifications in preparation for taking the EPQ as part of their post 16 curriculum.
Email us with your name, email address and school details to tell us you're planning to offer the Higher Project Qualification and we will allocate you a named Project Adviser and provide you with ongoing support and resources.
