There are three parts to consider in the costing of your Arts Award:
- Doing your Arts Award This part varies the most in cost, as each students’ needs differ greatly. All start with an initial 10 minutes skype free of charge to answer questions and discuss how we work. Then the first session is booked which involves detailed planning and mentoring. This session equips them with a framework and good understanding of what they need to do. The student then requests the next session of mentoring or tuition when needed, from our Arts Award Adviser at oakwellbarns centre. This is available in person or via skype and is charged at an hourly rate of £35 (reductions available if part of a group)
- Assessing the award oakwellbarns centre charges a set fee for assessing your award, outlined for the different levels of the award below. This fee covers the detailed assessment and report which has to be submitted with the portfolio of work for moderation as well as the administration work involved in submission by a qualified Arts Award Adviser.
- Moderating the award This fee is set by Trinity college, to where the student’s assessed work is sent away to be moderated for the qualification. Our Arts Award Adviser will need your payment of the moderating fee when she registers your work for moderation. This will be after she has assessed your work and believes that your work is ready for successful moderation. We have 100% success rate and if our assessor will give feedback and mentoring until she believes that you will accomplish your Arts Award successfully. Our ethos is one of encouragement and realising of potential.
