Getting started with the Project qualification

We know it can be challenging to integrate a new qualification into your curriculum. As the Project qualification is skills-based rather than content-based like most GCSEs, A levels and BTECs, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to start teaching it.

Implementing the Project qualification

The course materials section contains a range of documents offering guidance on integrating the Project qualification into your school's curriculum, as well as support with the administrative side.

You'll find guidance on titles, assessment and submission in the teaching support pages for each level:

Level 1 and 2 Project teaching support

Level 3 Project teaching support


Teachers can access a wide range of exemplars at all levels of the Project qualification, covering a range of topics and abilities. There are also comprehensive commentaries to help support you in marking your students' work.
