Please ensure that your invoice has been paid so that we can dispatch certificates to you promptly. If your invoice is not paid until after the moderation has taken place, we will not be able to send your certificates out in the time frame stated.
Certificate replacement and amendment
- Replacements: are requested when certificates are lost or damaged
- Amendments: are requested when errors need to be corrected and those errors appeared in the information submitted via the adviser portal online system, or in the information sent to Arts Award to be submitted on behalf of the centre.
- We are required by Ofqual to stamp reissued certificates with a re-issue date. This will be on the front left hand corner of the certificate. The only exception to this requirement is where there has been a clerical error by the Arts Award team or the adviser (e.g. an incorrect spelling) AND provided that the incorrect certificate(s) are returned within 28 days of issue.
The costs are as follows:
- £3.50 per Discover certificate
- £10.00 per Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold certificate
- The charges for Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold replacement certificates will be capped if you require several from the same moderation order. In this case, you will be charged full price for the 1st certificate plus £5 per certificate for the next 9. You will only be charged for 10 certificates even if there are more than 10 certificates required from the exam order or batch.
- The charges for Discover replacement certificates will be capped if you require several from the same certificates order. In this case, you will be charged full price for the first 20 certificates, after which any further certificates required from the same order will be free of charge.
