            CREST Accreditation - The process

            This article is suitable for those who know they would like to have their resource/activity accredited, and want to know more about the process involved.

            If you want to know more about what accreditation is, have a look at this article.


            How does the CREST accreditation process work?

            • Decide which award level you think your resource/activity is suited to here.
            • We will provide the accreditation application form and can answer any questions about filling this out.
            • Let us know when you have completed the form. We aim to have all forms reviewed within a month (but expect a much faster turn around).
            • If you are successful in having your resource/activity accredited we will provide our logo, guidelines on its use, and the terms of the accreditation.
            • Going forward - we will touch base yearly to ensure your activity is still suited to CREST and that you have up to date information, logos etc.


            What are the benefits of CREST Accreditation?

            • A framework and project management tool for STEM schemes/activities
            • Enhanced credibility for the scheme/activity, from the positive brand reputation of CREST among teachers and educators.
            • Inclusion of a link to the resource/activity on the CREST partner resource page, accessible from the CREST resource library.

            • Enhanced reputation for collaboration and a ‘joined-up’ offer for schools among stakeholders 
            • More opportunities for young people participating in scheme/activity to access regional, national & international events and prizes 

            • Progression opportunities for young people participating in the scheme/activity to take their interest in STEM further using the higher levels of the CREST framework 
            • Increased impact for the resource, including reach and benefits for those who take part. 
            • Access to the CREST logo, opportunity to use the logo to market your resource/activity as CREST accredited
