There are lots of reasons to take on an enrichment option, not least because you can have a lot of fun! It can also help you to stand out from the crowd when applying for university or employment, where competition can be fierce.
You could choose to do an additional qualification, including AS Level Critical Thinking or General Studies. You could choose to learn a language or even sign language.
How about an Extended Project or AQA Baccalaureate? This could see you completing a piece of research on a topic of your choice. Past projects have included music concerts, artwork and even short screenplays.
Budding engineers can take part in the Engineering Education Scheme England, which will see them working on actual engineering projects with local firms. There is also voluntary service and work experience to choose from.
Practical options include sport, music, art and drama. There are also faith, equality and diversity groups, a Debating Society or even the chance to learn basic driving skills before you turn 17.
