Gold Arts Award is designed for ages 16 and above but is open to anyone over 11. Young people gain a Level 3 qualification and 35 UCAS points.

We can support Unit 1 part B through work placement opportunities

Unit 1 Part A: extend own arts practice

  • Young people work in a new art form/genre or practice 

Unit 1 Part B: identify development opportunities within the wider arts sector

  • Young people will be able to participate in development opportunities through our work experience placements. We can also provide talks and Q&A sessions

Unit 1 Part C: research advanced practitioners and review arts events

  • Go to high quality arts events for inspiration and find out about the artists and their career paths

Unit 1 Part D: form and communicate a view on an arts issue

  • Make the case for an arts issue
