CREST: Home Learning – Silver Awards
CREST projects are flexible and fantastic for home learning!
Silver projects takes about ten to thirty hours and once your child submits their completed project they can receive a CREST Award.

CREST Silver stretches students and enriches their studies. Typically completed by students aged 14+, projects require around thirty hours of work and lead to a body of work. This work could be a written report, video diaries or something else entirely. Suitable coursework (e.g. GCSE Design and Technology) or other project work for work related learning, could be used to achieve CREST Silver.
At Silver level students begin to develop their own project ideas, using their teacher, club leader or supervisor as a sounding board for discussions. They are also expected to consider the broader impact of their project, demonstrate an innovative approach, and write a project report or portfolio of evidence to present to their CREST assessor.
Projects are also available for 5-17 year olds.
