Silver Arts Award

The Chronicle Residency Programme will lead to a Silver Arts Award, a Level 2 Qualification managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.

The award is a personal learning programme which develops and assesses both arts-related and transferable skills, such as creativity, communication, planning and teamwork.

By being tailored to meet the young people’s individual learning and support needs, the Residency will support talented young people, who may not otherwise have had the chance, to develop their artistic interests and skills.

Instead of facing a future of long-term unemployment, the young people will improve their future life chances and enhance their prospects of employment. The Residency will enable them to reach their artistic potential and help them to find pathways into the arts and culture sector.
