Chocolate Films offers three nationally recognised accreditations which can be attached to any of our workshops to enhance the learning experience; Arts Award, ASDAN and AQA Unit Award.

Arts Award

This nationally recognised accreditation recognises young people’s development in the arts through creative challenges and sharing skills and achievements and looks great on young people’s CVs. We offer two different levels; Bronze and Silver. Both levels are available to young people aged 11 to 25. The Arts Award involves achieving an arts challenge, reviewing arts events, researching artists and arts organisations, sharing arts skills and/or delivering an arts leadership project with other people. Young people need to plan their work with an adviser and keep a record by creating their own Arts Award portfolio. Our portfolios take the form of a online blog and video diary.


Chocolate Films Workshops is proud to announce that we are an Arts Mark partner. Our professional filmmaker facilitators are trained to ensure your students gain the best possible creative and inclusive experience.

We offer hands on filmmaking workshops to create the next generation of creatives. From drama, documentary, animation, music video and leadership, plus many more. Your students will learn how to create their own films digital media using technical skills taught by professional filmmakers; that can be used in all areas of curriculum.


The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a unique recording of achievement scheme, rather than a qualification. It offers everyone the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised – no matter what this is, how old they are, how long it takes or how small the learning step might be. We offer a range of Unit awards in filmmaking, animation, documentary, editing, sound recording and camera skills. This is a brilliant award as it requires little academic work and participants can keep adding more and more Unit Awards to their portfolio. It is especially good for young people with SEN as many of the activities are hands on and require little written work.


We run workshops all year round, for all ages and group sizes. If you’d like to talk to us about booking a workshop just get in touch.
