Street Art incorporates a huge range of creative techniques and transferable skills. We have run educational workshops with adults and young people, primary and secondary schools, young/repeat offenders, at-risk youth, learning disability groups, prisons and hospitals.
There has always been an educational element to the work we do. Our work has fed into Duke of Edinburgh Awards, we are Arts Award accredited and have contributed to schools’ art syllabus.
Our experience delivering projects has found that many participants put in a huge amount of work but do not receive accreditation.
To address this Signal is now working in partnership with Education consultants Beyond Knowledge to develop tailored accredited curriculum projects around Street Art and other creative disciplines. Working either
inside or outside school hours, we can deliver additional accreditation to the existing school curriculum, which benefits both the students and the participating schools.
Our most recent tailored accreditation was the BTEC Level 2 Visual Arts Award (equivalent to one GCSE), which was delivered to 16 art students over 40 contact hours, with a 100% pass rate.
With adjustments made to the delivery time, our BTEC courses can be applied to young people between 14-19 of all levels. For example, if delivered within a pupil referral unit, it is recommended the course be delivered over an academic year.
Beyond Knowledge provide customised curricula, integrating creative digital media technologies with dynamic education programmes.
