Arts Award

It is also possible to take the Arts Award, which is a chance for students to get involved in the arts in a more hands-on way. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the art world through research and volunteering/training projects, as well as producing original artwork and/or performance pieces.

This award is a Level 3 qualification which is worth 35 UCAS points and counts towards your university entry. Units that you would study as part of the Arts Award are:

– Unit 1: Creative Project, Research into Arts Opportunities, Careers in the Arts, Attending and Reviewing Events and Art Issues and Debating
– Unit 2: Planning and Delivering an Arts Event, Project Management and Evaluation.
