Arts Award is a range of qualifications open to anyone up to the age of 25. It develops creativity, leadership and communication skills through engagement with the arts.
Arts Award motivates and celebrates young people’s artistic achievements. The different levels can be achieved through any arts, media or cultural activity, developing knowledge and understanding of chosen art forms. Young people find out about artists, musicians, filmmakers, authors, poets, actors, dancers etc. They record their findings in log books or online, take part in, experience, research and review arts activities and present their experiences to their peers.
Arts Award qualifications support young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. They learn to work independently, helping them to prepare for further education and employment. They are supported by Advisers who can be teachers, teaching assistants, learning officers, lecturers, youth workers, arts co-ordinators or arts professionals.
