Art Award (Silver Level) at Ursuline High School
Students create a portfolio based on a range of Artistic pursuits. Little previous experience of the Arts is necessary however students who have taken any Arts Subjects at GCSE / BTEC level 2 or have experience of the Arts out of school such as theatre schools, music lessons etc. will be able to build upon these experiences. Students have to undertake an Arts Challenge which involves them writing and action plan, working on their challenge, showing their work to others and getting feedback before completing an evaluation of their plan and challenge. Students also undertake a leadership challenge which involves them planning and working with others. Once again, they will learn how to write a detailed action plan, to review their progress and get back feedback from others. In addition to the challenge and leadership aspects of the course, students also need to attend Arts events, create reviews and share these with others. This is an excellent course for developing independence, planning and leadership skills in a highly practical way. This is a level 2 course accredited by QCA.
Externally assessed portfolio. Students can present evidence in any form including written work, photographs and videos or even on-line.
