ARTS AWARDS – CREATE A DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH RJC DANCE

Learners take part in the award at Arts Award centres, which may be arts organisations, schools, museums, youth clubs, community centres or any other setting that can support learners to take part in the arts. RJC Dance has trained advisers at the appropriate level. Parts of the award can be undertaken away from the centre. Activities may be directly supported and delivered by the trained adviser but may also be assessed independently by the learner with support from others.

RJC Dance Arts Award advisers

Our Advisers have successfully completed a training course relevant to the level they wish to run and be engaged by a centre. They can then support learners to work towards their award and act as mentors and/or facilitators. Advisers enable learners to access the required activities and support them to organise their evidence of participation in their arts logs. Arts Award advisers are also the primary assessors of the learners’ work and are responsible for assessing it using the framework and assessment criteria in the Arts Award manual (known as the Toolkit).
