Discover Arts Award where you live and work
Arts Award is open to everyone across the UK looking to recognise young people’s creative development. Arts Award training is now also being offered in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Get started in the UK
If you are based within the UK, it is possible to book a place at any available training course, or to arrange for a trainer to come into your organisation. Costs for training and moderation are the same across the UK.
If you are based outside of the UK, it may be possible to get involved providing you meet some specific conditions.
Support in England - Bridge organisations
One of the key areas of the Bridge organisations’ work is to drive participation in Arts Award and Artsmark across each region. Each Bridge organisation creates its own offer to support the development of Arts Award within their region.
The 10 Bridge organisations are:
* Norfolk and Norwich Festival covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
** Royal Opera House Bridge covers Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale
*** Artswork covers the South East except for the unitary authority of Medway and the North Kent districts of Dartford, Gravesham and Swale
Arts Award outside of the UK
Arts Award is one of Trinity College London's younger qualifications and doesn’t currently have an operating structure outside of the UK. As Trinity is an international awarding body we are considering the implications for a similar qualification to made available internationally.
