Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
If your students are working towards an Extended Project Qualification in an area related to science, technology, engineering or maths, they can gain extra recognition for their work by entering your project for a CREST Gold Award.
There’s a lot of similarity between the EPQ and CREST Gold. Both involve extended independent research into a student’s chosen topic. Students also need to write up a report, and deliver a presentation about their work.

My Stem Club were assessed for their Bronze Award and had so much pride when they got it! The assessor was impressed at the skills they had learned in communication and facing challenges. The whole experience is so valuable!
It’s helped the self-esteem for some low achievers for whom it is their major achievement in school.
