Enter CIC is an approved centre to run the Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award Qualifications (London). We run the award at our Durham branch. This programme is a national qualification and students studying with us at Gold level will earn UCAS Tariff points. This is the perfect programme for any students aged 11-25 who are seriously interested in having a career in the industry. The award supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. An Arts Award is extremely useful when searching for further education placements, or job opportunities in the arts.

Arts Award is a qualification offered at Levels 1,2 and 3 (Bronze, Silver and Gold on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The award has two strands – arts practice and arts leadership. Young people gather evidence of their creative and skill development, which they present in a portfolio.

Certificates are awarded by Trinity College London. The award assesses how young people develop in their chosen arts activities rather than achievement of a specific skill level.

Young people can gain their awards through work in any art form. This includes creative, technical and support roles. At Enter CIC we are able to provide opportunities and support in all art forms. Students enrolling on our Arts Award programme get to work with experienced mentors and find themselves placed in unique learning environments ranging from theatres, recording studios, radio stations, and with professional dance and touring theatre companies.

This award provides fantastic opportunities for young people to develop a thorough understanding of their preferred art form in a safe, engaging and inspiring environment.

To find out about enrolling on one of our programmes, please call our head office 01740 655437 or email

Arts Award aspires to support any young person to enjoy the arts and develop creative leadership skills.
