Name of Course
Arts Award & KS 3 Art

 Arts Award Bronze – Level 1

Outline of Course
Our students follow a very bespoke highly individualised programme that is based on their chosen interests. This enables students to explore new skills, develop and refine existing ones.  The Arts Award programme enables our young people to develop as artists and arts leaders

Arts Award, endorsed by Arts Council England and run by Trinity College London, is a flexible and completely student centered award that encompasses the Arts as a whole and incorporates performing arts, music, dance as well as visual arts (drawing / painting / ceramics / textiles / sculpture).  There is no final exam for this qualification.

To achieve Bronze, a Level 1 award on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), 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 Arts Award portfolio. Their portfolio might be a folder, sketchbook, video diary or a website – it’s up to them.

Bronze award is equivalent to GCSE grade 1-3.
