Art – Arts Award
Arts Award inspires young people to grow their arts and leadership talents: it’s creative, valuable and accessible. Arts Award can be achieved at five levels, four qualifications and an introductory award.
Arts Award Discover
Arts Award Discover is the introductory award open young people aged up to 25. To achieve Discover, children and young people discover the arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end.
This award provides a great introduction to the arts and to other Arts Award levels.
Arts Award Explore
This award is an Entry Level 3 qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). It is the perfect stepping stone from our introductory award, Arts Award Discover, to the Level 1 qualification, Bronze Arts Award. Young people collect their arts experiences in an Explore arts log as they go along, recording what they find and enjoy.
Arts Award, Bronze and Silver
To achieve the Bronze Arts Award, a Level 1 national qualification, young people take part in an arts activity they enjoy, go to an arts event, research their arts inspiration and share their skills with others. Young people need to plan their work with an adviser and keep a record by creating their own ArtsAward portfolio.
Silver Arts Award, a Level 2 qualification, has two units – Unit 1: arts practice and Unit 2: arts leadership. Doing Silver involves achieving an arts challenge, reviewing arts events, researching artists and arts organisations and delivering an arts leadership project with other people. Young people need to plan their work with an adviser and keep a record by creating their own Arts Award portfolio.
Completed portfolios for both awards are submitted to Trinity College for external moderation after successful internal moderation.
