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. 

Get started in the UK
If you are looking to get started with Arts Award, adviser training is widely available across England and we also offer a growing number of courses in Scotland and Wales.

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 (see below).


Support in England - Bridge organisations
Arts Council England funds a network of 10 Bridge organisations who use their experience and expertise in England to build on good practice and to broker experiences for children and young people to connect with arts and cultural opportunities. 

One of the key areas of the Bridge organisations’ work is to drive participation in Arts Award 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 be made available internationally.

The timescale for this project is not yet finalised and at this time, Arts Award is only available to young people outside of the UK providing that they are either completing Arts Award at schools maintained by the British government and within the British education system (for example British Forces schools), or working on a project with a UK-based centre, via whom they will arrange certification/moderation - (For example, an international exchange arts project).

If you are working with young people outside of the UK in this way and are interested in running Arts Award, please contact us for more information.
