We are super passionate about teaching creativity in computing to encourage tomorrow’s forward thinkers. Through the Arts Award, U Can Too show how the two subjects combined can provide young people with the tools they need to explore a world of possibilities. This is a qualification open to ages 5 to 25. At U Can Too, we work with learners from a range of environments helping them to achieve Arts Award qualifications at their chosen level.

The Arts Award Explained

The Arts Award is moderated by Trinity College. It is intended to develop creativity and encourage leadership skills, giving young people the tools they need to confidently explore a creative future.

This is a qualification that is open to primary school children from the age of 5, through to young adults up to the age of 25. 

No matter what age you are, this is a fun and interesting experience for all ages. It encourages learners to delve deeper into the possibilities of implementing the arts as part of other subjects that they enjoy. For us, we help you explore art and computing combined.

There are various levels to the Arts Awards, including Bronze, Silver and Gold. A class or individual can pursue each level at any time to enrich their learning.

The key elements to the Arts Award include:

  • Taking part in arts activities 
  • Researching artists or crafts people and their work 
  • Sharing their arts discoveries

Once achieved, the Arts Award qualification can help to improve UCAS point scores for university applications. It is also recognised by employers, giving participants that boost into the industry of their choice.
