CREST Bronze Award Bronze Awards focus on fun and transferable skills. They require around 10 hours of work on one project, and are typically completed by 11-to-14-year-olds. By working towards a CREST Bronze Award, students experience the project process; improving their enquiry, problem solving and communication skills. They have the opportunity to develop the project using their own ideas, taking decisions about how to progress with on-going support from their teacher, club leader or supervisor.CREST Bronze can count towards a DofE Skills section and is validated as 10hrs towards the Children's University Passport to Learning.Participating in a link scheme – a partnership programme run by another organisation – can help young people achieve CREST Awards.
