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 (Explore, Bronze, Silver, Gold) and an introductory award (Discover).
Young people get to:
> discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
> develop their creativity and leadership skills
> learn new skills and share them with others
> get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
> gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment
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. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.
This training is for professionals who work with children and young people aged up to 25 who would like to run the Discover and Explore levels in their own setting.
