Extra UCAS points incentive to join Company Programme

Students completing the YE Company programme will now be able to complete the Level 3 Pearson Extended Project Qualification alongside, meaning they can earn up to 28 UCAS points.

Students completing the Company Programme with Young Enterprise are already ahead of their peers as they move into the workplace with their ability to demonstrate 21st workplace skills such as collaborative working, application of digital technology, financial capability, decision making and problem solving.

Now they can also use the experience to build an evidence portfolio to gain the qualification.

Carol Fitzsimons

CEO of Young Enterprise NI, Carol Fitzsimons MBE, said, “This is an exciting partnership for the charity, as it means our students now get the extra benefit of accreditation of their experience gained on the Company programme. Whilst we know the skills they gain are a benefit on their own, achieving a recognised qualification and associated UCAS points is an extra reason to get involved.”

One of the ways in which learners can complete their EPQ is to plan, research, develop and evaluate the production of an artefact (product). Learners also need to provide evidence of the process that they have undertaken to achieve the outcome.


During the EPQ process learners will work towards fulfilling a design brief or client commission that sets out the role or function that the product should fulfill, such as ‘design and build an educational toy for a toddler’ or ‘produce a piece of graphic communication to support the aims of a charity’.

To find out more, email putting EPQ in the subject line.
