The Level 2 Higher Project is a free-standing qualification that can be taken alongside other Level 2 studies.
It allows learners to create an extended piece of work that can complement their studies in, for example, City & Guilds Technical qualifications, GCSEs, Principal Learning or as part of a City & Guilds TechBac programme.

Delivery of the Higher Project qualification in centres will involve some teaching of the necessary skills, supervision and assessment of the learner’s progress. It will involve extended autonomous work by the learner. Learners will be required to;
• choose an area of interest
• draft a title and aims of the project for formal approval by the centre
• plan, research and carry out the project
• deliver a presentation to a specified audience
• provide evidence of all stages of project development and production for assessment
The Level 3 Extended Project is a free-standing qualification that can be taken alongside other Level 3 studies.

Alternatively the Extended Project qualification may explore an area of personal interest or activity outside the main programme of study.
