Designed by schools for schools, the refreshed Artsmark will help you to embed arts and culture in your whole school improvement plan.
From the start of the 2023-24 Academic Year, a new National Provider will deliver Artsmark Development Training and provide schools and education settings with support through their Artsmark Journey. Artsmark schools and settings can expect the same quality of development training and support throughout their Artsmark Award journey from the new provider, including Artsmark development training, guidance with their submissions, signposting to cultural organisations and offers in your area.
From now until July, IVE will continue to be your main point of contact for Artsmark support and will work closely with the new delivery provider to ensure a smooth transition, ready for September 2023.
For further information regarding the Artsmark transition, including the Artsmark Partnership programme, please click here: https://www.artsmark.org.uk/artsmark-transition-qa

Awarded by Arts Council England, Artsmark helps schools to deliver a high-quality arts and cultural education and provides an excellent way to demonstrate this, no matter what your starting point. Artsmark is open to all primary, secondary, independent and special schools in England, sixth form colleges, pupil referral units and Youth Offending Services.
We believe that every child should have an opportunity to create, experience and participate in extraordinary work. At the heart of Artsmark, seven quality principles give structure and substance to a curriculum which can unlock the potential of children and young people and help them to develop their skills and talents.
