We are currently working with the following national partners on special projects. These may be targetting particular groups of young people, developing links between our programmes or creating new resources.
The Scout Association We're delighted to be working with The Scout Association to support youth members to take part in Arts Award. We have worked together to deliver in-house training for leaders and created resources to map current association Activity Badges with Arts Award. There are a number of Scout Groups delivering Arts Award within their regular meetings. Please read the 1st Olney Scout group case study or the 6th Chelmsford Cub group case study to find out how these Scout groups have achieved Bronze and Discover Arts Awards.
RSC Shakespeare Challenge We're delighted to be working with the RSC to offer Shakespeare Challenge, a great way of exploring Shakespeare through Bronze Arts Award. 2009-2010 saw a successful pilot with 10 schools, and the Shakespeare Challenge is now available to all Arts Award centres.

Football Arts Academy During 2009, we worked with the Football Foundation to support four major football clubs in the south of England to pilot a programme which used Arts Award to accredit arts projects run by their community teams. Watch our video here
