Silver Award

Silver Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification, working at the same standard as GCSE grades A*-C/9-4. This level is designed for young people aged 14- 16 years but is open to anyone aged 11- 25.

Silver Arts Award is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in pursuing the arts in further education or for their career. You can explore arts leadership and career opportunities by planning and reviewing arts events, and also by researching future opportunities and different career pathways.

This is a great opportunity for any young person interested in volunteering with Durham University Library and Collections on a long-term basis.
