Statement of support for Cambridge IPQ
The Cambridge International Project Qualification (Cambridge IPQ) is an exciting new project-based qualification, typically for students aged 16 to 19 years old. Students have the opportunity to develop skills by carrying out research into a topic of their choice. Taking the Cambridge IPQ allows learners to identify a suitable research topic, plan and carry out research including undertaking a literature review and present their findings in a 5000 word report, whilst maintaining a research log.
The Cambridge IPQ is a skills-based qualification. Learners develop higher-order thinking skills that universities and employers look for, including analysis, evaluation and synthesis. It also builds their research, reflection and communication skills.
The aims are to enable students to develop:
- a research project on a topic of their own choice, reflecting their academic interests
- an understanding of the research process and appropriate research skills
- a critical approach to sources of information
- a reflective approach to learning and research
- independence and confidence, preparing them for study in higher education and/or future career development
- improved skills of planning, research, reflection, analysis, evaluation and communication.
