Right from the start – teacher notes

This section emphasises that an ethical approach to project work starts with the planning

While completion of the checklist discussed in ‘Good plan? – teacher notes’ is not a requirement for the EPQ, we strongly encourage its use as it will go some way to preventing some of the problems that can arise during project work, and it provides evidence of thoughtful planning. We suggest that EPQ students should get their ethical checklist – and their health and safety risk assessment – countersigned by their supervisor before proceeding with their project.
