What about taking an Arts Award? The Arts Award is a national qualification which supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Doing an Arts Award will help you to develop your creative skills and your ability to communicate well and lead projects. An Arts Award is useful for getting further education opportunities or jobs - in the arts and other fields.
You can achieve the Award if you are aged 11-25, and take part in the arts at your school, college or youth project, or with an arts organisation or youth arts scheme. Contact us at Daisi or visit www.artsaward.org.uk to find out more.
