Nottingham Advantage Award at Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Open to University of Nottingham undergraduates, The Nottingham Advantage Award provides the opportunity for participants to stand out, demonstrate the vision to achieve key goals, and to gain recognition for commitment, showing potential employers valuable skills gained whilst making the most of university life.

Nottingham Lakeside Arts has devised an Arts in the Community module, which can count as one of three modules required to gain the Nottingham Advantage Award. The Lakeside module is open to any student who is working or undertaking a placement or traineeship here, and is designed flexibly to enable credits to be awarded for work being undertaken at Lakeside.

NLA’s module aims to gain an understanding of the organisation’s objectives as well as practical work experience within a multi-arts centre.

The University of Nottingham Museum of Archaeology at Lakeside also participates in the Heritage module of the Nottingham Advantage Award, a module which gives students interested in working in the heritage sector valuable work experience. Participants will be given experience in various areas of museum work, including collections, education, events and administration. Where possible, activities can be tailored to the specific interests of the student.

Raising attainment in Drama and Theatre Studies

Success in the Written Examination - suitable for AQA, WJEC, Edexcel and OCR.

Lakeside have worked closely with an experienced teacher and education consultant to help students with the task of writing effectively about theatre, in order to address teachers’ concerns that it’s often the written component of courses which prevents students from achieving their potential grades at GCSE and A Level.

Programmes include

  • A post-show Seminar identifying key points for use in evaluative writing
  • Resource pack with teacher guide
  • ICT presentation for use in lessons
  • All packed with exemplar material linked directly into exam requirements

Superb! It is exactly what the students need to be able to access the higher grades for this aspect of the A Level
