Below you can find information on how we support both Bronze and Silver Arts Awards.
Bronze Arts Award
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. Bronze is available to young people aged 11 to 25.
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.
The Arena Theatre can help young people achieve their Bronze Arts Award by doing the following:
Part A – explore the arts as a participant
Part B – explore the arts as an audience member
Part C – arts inspiration
Silver Arts Award
Silver Arts Award is a Level 2 qualification on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is designed for ages 14 and above, but is open to young people aged 11 to 25.
The Arena Theatre can help young people achieve their Silver Arts Award by doing the following:
Unit 1: Part C – review arts events
Unit 1: Part D – arts research
