Engineering Education Scheme – England & Scotland

Award Level Gold

The Engineering Education Scheme in England & Scotland, run by EDT, links teams of Year 12 or S5/S6 students with a local company to work on a six-month project involving real scientific, engineering and technological problems.

How to achieve a CREST Gold Award

At the beginning of the project you must enter your students for the CREST Gold Award by contacting your EDT CREST local coordinator. They will also liaise with you to make sure that your project meets the CREST criteria.

During the project you can contact your EDT CREST representative if you have any questions. For the Celebration and Assessment Day (CAD) you will need to submit to your CREST representative electronic copies of:

  • your project report
  • your EES CREST checklist
  • a personal appendix for each student.

If these are not received by EDT´s submission deadline, your CREST assessor may not complete assessment of your project at the CAD. This will create work for you and delay the outcome. If you have any questions contact CREST@britishscienceassociation.org

These documents will be sent to you once you register for your CREST award:

  • Go4SET teacher guide
  • EDT team guide
  • EES CREST checklist.
