You can save money!

  • In house training - if you want to train more than 6 people, you have a training venue, and you want a more flexible approach to timings, tailor-made adviser training can be a more cost effective approach. More
  • You can buy multipacks of arts logs and guidance booklets and we offer group discounts for moderation - find out how you can save

 

Minimum fees apply for all Bronze, Silver and Gold standard and joint moderations; a postal moderation is available for small groups.

 

Costs for young people

The costs involved in providing opportunities for young people to complete the award vary greatly depending on the level, art form and setting.

Each centre approaches the direct costs to young people differently, some centres access free arts events, or take advantage of discounted offers, others fundraise or subsidise activities from their core funding.

Some centres will charge a fee for participation and activities whereas others may cover the costs.

 

Access Fund grants

Arts Award centres can also apply for an Arts Award Access Fund grant.

Arts Award Access Fund provides small grants to individuals and groups who need financial help to achieve an Arts Award.  Find out more
