Extended Project Qualification: Skills & Insight – Getting Started & Making the Most of The Summer With Dr Rebecca Westrup From University of East Anglia

23rd May 2022 @ 10:10 - 11:00



In this session, Dr Rebecca Westrup from the University of East Anglia will lead a skills and insight workshop for students who are at the beginning of their EPQ journey. The session will focus on sharing insights to help students to get started with:

  • Choosing the project area and deciding on an artefact or research report;
  • Setting a question
  • and practicalities and pitfalls of undertaking research.

Below is a recording of the slides with Rebecca’s voiceover which can be used as a recap for students but also as a resource for those that were unable to join us in May for the live event:

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) starting out on an Extended Project Qualification.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance, with respect to challenges they may face or questions they have.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices.
