What on earth has Forensic Science got to do with the Arts Award I hear you ask?

Well many of the skills used in creative industries are also used in science.

Concentration, commitment, dedication, investigation, experimentation and so much more, so now Complete Forensics is able to deliver the Arts Award for and with you.

Arts Award is…

…a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry, and now science.

Offered at five different levels, young people get to:

  • discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
  • develop their creativity and leadership skills
  • learn new skills and share them with others
  • get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
  • gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.

Danielle was a youth theatre member for three years, completing her Bronze and Gold Arts Awards. Although she had a strong interest in theatre, her dream was to be a surgeon and she began applying for degree courses in Medicine. She was expected to get all As in her A – levels and during her interview for medicine, the panel asked about her Gold Arts Award. She talked about her verbatim theatre piece and the zombie film that she had managed for her arts leadership project.   The university said they were looking for someone who was well rounded, so had really enjoyed hearing about her experience with youth theatre and her Arts Award. She was accepted on to this highly competitive course.
