Foundation Project Qualification (Level 1)

Do you enjoy completing coursework over a formal exam? Have you got an area of interest, which you wish to learn more about? If so, HPQ is certainly for you!

Spend a year independently researching an area of your choice. For example: criminality, the ethics of abortion, domestic violence against men and racism in education. You will produce a 2,000 word report, conduct a presentation and will keep an online production log. You attend class for 2 hours per week where you will be taught independant study skills. These include: writing an academic piece of research, interpreting and analysing data as well as the essential skills for independent primary research. An allocated supervisor will oversee and support your entire journey.

If you don’t wish to produce a 2,000 word essay, you could consider doing a performance or creating an actual product.
