A number of the Principia resources and activities could be used to achieve a CREST Award which could further celebrate what the students have achieved in taking part.
CREST is a UK award scheme that recognises success, and enables students to build their skills and demonstrate personal achievement in project work. It offers educators an easy-to-run framework for curriculum enhancement and is student-led, which means that young people take ownership of their projects and choose to undertake them in areas they enjoy or see as relevant.UCAS endorses CREST Awards for inclusion in students’ personal statements – they’re well regarded, high-quality and a tangible recognition of success. CREST can also count towards the Skills section at any DofE Award level.
