Do the CREST Awards link to other enrichment schemes?

Yes, each level of CREST Award links to other enrichment schemes in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  Please click here for further details.

Many organisations want their schemes to be recognised through CREST Accreditation as this shows the scheme fits particular criteria and most importantly, adds value to the project work done with our partners.
