With your adviser’s help, you decide which level of Arts Award to start with
Bronze Arts Award
Bronze is available to young people aged 11 to 25.
To achieve Bronze, a Level 1 national qualification, young people take part in an arts activity they enjoy, go to an arts event, research their arts hero/heroine 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.
There are no entry requirements or set time limit for completing Bronze Arts Award. Bronze will usually take young people about 40 hours to complete.
Silver Arts Award
Silver is available to young people aged 11 to 25.
Silver Arts Award, a Level 2 qualification, has two units –
Unit 1: arts practice
Unit 2: arts leadership. 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. Young people can pick their own style of portfolio – this could be a diary, video, website blog – or something different altogether.
There are no entry requirements or set time limit for completing Silver Arts Award. It will take young people around 60 hours to complete their Silver award.
Part B of Arts Award requires the student to attend an arts event, review it and share the review.
