BLOG: How is BALTIC, Centre for Contemporary Art supporting secondary schools to achieve Arts Award success? | Culture Bridge

‘The students that I have worked with at Duke's Secondary School have been so incredibly excited and enthusiastic. They’re a real joy to work with and as well as the 16 UCAS points that they gain once they complete Arts Award Gold, I have seen them become independent and creative thinkers.'

Rachael Rickwood, Assistant Producer (Children and Young People) at BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art discusses what she feels JBVI students have taken from their Arts Award Gold experience.
