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 been developing 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.

Advisers will be able to request to receive Special edition certificates when making a moderation booking for Explore through to Gold, or placing an order for Discover certificates, from September 2014.

For ideas and inspiration please see our mapping and ideas resource here.

For advisers delivering Shakespeare Challenge Special Edition guidance can be found here.

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.
