The Arts Award is a qualification managed by Trinity College London and the Arts Council England. It was launched in 2005 as a platform to support young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts, build creative and leadership skills and achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form. This could be in a variety of art forms – Art, drama, theatre studies, costume, set design, photography, fashion, textiles, digital design, music, architecture. They will then 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.
At Oriel Sixth form we offer the Gold Arts Award to students in year 12 and 13. This course can be studied alongside your sixth form qualifications, will include at least 4 hours of timetabled lessons and is worth 16 UCAS points upon completion. Each student will need to complete two units of work. One exploring their personal arts development and a Leadership of the arts project.
