The AQA Baccalaureate is an additional qualification that A-Level students can take alongside their A Level studies and will earn them additional UCAS qualifying points for University entry. The additional qualification is also highly valued amongst many leading universities.
We believe the AQA Baccalaureate Award will benefit our students as they will be able to demonstrate to employers and universities that they have acquired real life skills in areas such as Work Experience, Project Management and Delivery, Time Management, Research and working to tight deadlines. Students can also gain additional UCAS points for the AS General Studies and AS Extended Project which can also be taken as stand-alone qualifications.
AQA Enrichment falls into three core areas;
- Work related learning, including work experience
- Community participation, such as voluntary service
- Personal development, like the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
STEM Academy offers all three of the above enrichment areas and most of our A Level students will find that they will be able to meet AQA enrichment criteria through existing the STEMAC+ core activities as long as they are able to complete a minimum 100 hours of such activity. They would then only have the Extended Project (EPQ) to complete in order to earn the AQA Baccalaureate.
