Arts Award Shakespeare Challenge
Trinity College London has been working in partnership with Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) for a number of years on a special edition Bronze Arts Award known as Shakespeare Challenge. Due to its success we have developed Shakespeare Challenge at all Arts Award levels, including Discover and Explore. This is a great option for existing Arts Award centres or for those new to Arts Award within the education, arts and cultural or youth and community sector who are using Shakespeare inspired activities to explore the arts.
N.B - Follow the steps below for moderation or certification:
Place a moderation request as normal through the adviser portal selecting the levels at which you wish to moderate, then when confirming your young people’s details via the mass enrolment spreadsheet select the Arts Award level under ‘Exam suite’ and the Shakespeare Challenge option under the ‘Examination/product name’ column.

If you are delivering Shakespeare Challenge at Bronze level then we have created some Bronze portfolio templates that may support young people to gather their evidence.
Stand up for Shakespeare
The Shakespeare Challenge recognises the approach to teaching and learning Shakespeare as celebrated through the RSC’s Stand up for Shakespeare Manifesto. The aims of this campaign were to encourage more young people to Do Shakespeare on their feet, See Shakespeare Live and to Start Shakespeare Earlier.
