What age-range does the CREST Awards scheme cover?

CREST Awards are typically taken by 11-19yr olds, though younger students can also take them. 


Bronze Awards are usually taken by 11-14yr olds; around 10 hours of project work is expected.

Silver Awards are usually taken by 14-16yr olds; around 30 hours of project work is expected.  A mentor who has expertise relevant to the project is preferred.  Your CREST Local Coordinator can help you find one.
