What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is way for young people to earn qualifications by engaging in extra circular activities. Arts Award is for anyone aged up to 25 and encourages them to grow as artists and arts leaders. It inspires connectivity and taking part in the arts industry, ranging from fashion, to digital art, pottery, events management, music and many more.

There are five different qualification levels which allows young people to:

  • discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
  • develop their creativity and leadership skills
  • learn new skills and share them with others
  • get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
  • gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment

To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser, acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.
