Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form - from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.
Arts Award has five different levels:
Discover is a non-accredited introductory award. 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.
Explore is accredited as an entry level 3 qualification. Children and young people collect their arts experiences in an Explore arts log as they go along, recording what they find and enjoy.
Bronze is a level 1 national qualification. Young people take part in an arts activity, go to an arts event, research someone in the arts who inspires them and shares their skills with others.
Silver is a level 2 qualification and 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.
Gold Arts Award is the highest level at level 3 and is also recognised on the UCAS tariff (16 points). Gold has two units – unit 1: personal arts development and unit 2: arts projects leadership. Gold involves achieving an arts challenge, reviewing arts events, researching artists and arts organisations, and delivering an arts leadership project with other people.
To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others.
To take part in Arts Award, children & young people need an Arts Award Adviser.
