Event Details

Sunningdale Teaching School is collaborating with Durham Creatives and Culture Bridge to host Arts Awards Advisor Training for Educational and Creative Practitioners working in the North East.

What Is Arts Awards
Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for children and young people up to 25 years old, and is on the Regulatory Qualifications Framework. There are 5 different levels, from the introductory ‘Discover’ up to Gold, which is a Level 3 qualification and has UCAS points. Children and young people take part in the arts, find out about artists, review arts events, and at Silver and Gold level, lead a project in the arts. They collect evidence along the way, and reflect on what they’ve been doing, building a portfolio of work. Arts Award can cover all different artforms; from visual art to drama, creative writing to music. It’s about exploring, enjoying and developing in the arts; it’s often what organisations, artists, services and schools are already delivering, and Arts Award puts a framework around it, and accredits the work through a qualification.
Children and young people who want to do Arts Award need the support of a trained Arts Award Adviser; their role is to support, signpost, and assess the Arts Award portfolios.
By becoming an Arts Awards Adviser you will be in a position to support the children and young people you work with to gain these qualifications.

Bronze and Silver Adviser training
Advisers will support young people to take part in arts activities, extend their knowledge of, and interest in, the arts, and the development of their art skills through planning, implementing and reviewing a personal arts challenge appropriate to their ability and understanding. Advisers will support young people to review arts events, find out more about the arts through meeting and working with arts practitioners, research arts organisations and explore future education and career pathways.
