Arts Award Bronze and Silver adviser training in Gloucester - last few places available

The last few places available for the forthcoming Arts Award Bronze and Silver adviser training in Gloucester on Thursday 1 October 2015.  

To become an Arts Award adviser and support and assess children and young people through Arts Award you need to successfully complete a training course.  

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that support anyone up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form - from fashion to film making, pottery to poetry.

Through Arts Award young people gain a nationally recognised qualification enabling them to progress into further education and employment. Arts Award has five levels, four of which (Explore, Bronze, Silver, Gold) are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Arts Award Discover is an introductory award.

As they work towards Arts Award, children and young people collect evidence of what they have done and reflect on their experiences.  At Discover, Explore and Bronze they can choose to use the specially designed arts logs – or you can create your own to fit your project or the young people you’re working with.  Evidence can also be collected in any format that works for them and you: a folder, sketchbook, video diary, a website or blog. 

At all levels, children and young people work with an Arts Award adviser. This is a trained adult who supports young people in gaining arts experiences, provides guidance and assesses arts logs and portfolios.  Teachers, teaching assistants, museum learning staff, art practitioners, youth workers and volunteers can all train as advisers. 

Your Arts Award can be based around any arts or media activity, and you can complete it in a wide variety of settings – like youth clubs, arts centres, schools, colleges, theatres or community groups.

There are no entry requirementsno time limit for completing the award, and no set rules on how to present final work. Young people just need to be aged under 25, and ready to explore new creative experiences.

A one day course is available on Thursday 1 October 2015 in Gloucester, which will enable you to deliver and assess Bronze (Level one) and Silver (Level two) qualifications.
