Bronze Arts Award

Free support to deliver Arts Award at your school

Young people in Years 9 to 11, from selected KaMCOP partner schools*, have the opportunity to achieve their Bronze Arts Award through a range of free workshops, mentoring sessions and creative camps, tailored to complement your school’s curriculum.


What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is a unique qualification that supports young people 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 digital art, pottery to poetry.

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on creative challenges, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey and along the way they are supported by an Arts Award Adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.


What support can UCA provide?

UCA can support the delivery of Arts Award in your school by working with targeted groups of young people to enable them to successfully complete their Bronze Award, by providing:

  • Three in-school creative workshops
  • A mentoring session for each student
  • An Arts Award Easter School or Summer Camp
  • Creative tutors and experts
