Guide To: Effective project-based learning

This SecEd Guide offers practical advice on how we can ensure project-based learning approaches are effective, the key design and delivery principles, and how projects can support the development of crucial employability skills.

Produced in partnership with Pearson, the SecEd Guide To Project Qualifications considers what effective project-based learning (PBL) looks like and the role it can play in supporting progression to further/higher education and the workplace.

The guide includes an in-depth, evidence-based look at effective PBL approaches, including key delivery and design principles, the traits of a PBL classroom, assessment advice, and rounding off with our three golden rules.

It considers how PBL supports remote learning approaches during Covid-19, as well as the links PBL has to industry and the workplace and why it puts students at an advantage when applying to higher education.

There is also a case study of one school's approach to embedding PBL within its key stage 3 computing curriculum.
