What is it?
Open to anyone up to 25 years old, Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for children and young people that allow them to explore, experience and take part in numerous art forms and to grow as artists and art leaders. Through working towards an award, young people develop skills such as autonomy, as they work independently and critical thinking, as they evaluate and review their experiences of art forms. They are also able to shape each art award to their individual interests and strengths. As they progress through the award levels the skills and qualifications gained can help them to prepare for further education and employment.
The qualifications are on the Regulated Qualifications Framework and can be delivered across a range of education and youth settings.
There are 5 levels of achievement:
