At Discover and Explore levels, the framework is suitable for whole classes to take part and provides a useful structure for ensuring that students get a rounded view across the Arts. As students progress through Bronze to Gold levels, towards a national qualification, the Award tends to be better suited to small groups or individuals.
Our Museums can support any Arts Award, however we have a wide range of programmes that work at Discover and Explore level. Many of these can be integrated into class topics and make full use of the museum visit as a central part of the Award, reducing any impact on teacher workload. We can provide Tees Valley Arts Award materials and help out with marking and moderation. If you are interested in your students gaining an Arts Award, please contact Project Coordinator Leon Francis:
Teachers, please feel free to share the arts award resources with your parents and children. To help you introduce Arts Award here is an editable word document you can add to your homeschooling apps or email to parents.
