CREST partner resources and activities

 

Below is a list of resources and activities from other organisations that have been CREST accredited. An accredited resource or activity meets the CREST guiding principles and helps students achieve their CREST Award. Information on the accreditation process is available on our help centre

At Star - Bronze levels, students will achieve their CREST Award if the facilitator believes they have sufficiently engaged with the activity and completed the relevant passport or workbook. At Gold and Silver levels, students need to submit their work for assessment. Assessment should be straightforward if students have completed an accredited resource or activity, as these match the CREST criteria

Some accredited resources and activities can be downloaded and completed by a facilitator or student. Others are geographically limited or require a visit to or from an external organisation. See below for more details.
