Arts Award Access & Inclusion statement
Arts Award is continually working to improve access to our programmes for everyone with specific individual requirements. Here are some areas that we have improved or are committed to making better. If you have in mind a particular area that you think we should prioritise, please get in touch.
- Advisers can request training resources, toolkits, and some young people’s resources in accessible formats, such as large print, Braille, audio transcription, or unlocked PDF. Hard copy materials must be requested a minimum of 6 weeks in advance. Digital formats may be available sooner
- Accessibility information for all our adviser training venues is outlined on each training date listing. You can also contact us or the training venue prior to your training date to discuss any specific requirements
- New Arts Award films will include a subtitled option. We are currently exploring making some young people’s guidance and sections of our websites available in British Sign Language (BSL)
- Children and young people can evidence their work using a range of formats appropriate to their learning styles or individual requirements, including audio or video recording, annotated photos, signs and symbols (e.g. Makaton, Signalong, BSL), and scribed responses
- Where young people have used communication techniques in their evidence which need translating (such as Braille, Makaton, British Sign Language or other signed languages, or languages other than English), reasonable adjustments to the moderation time can be requested in order for the adviser to explain these communication techniques and how they have been used in the context of the young people’s Arts Award work. Please note: all evidence must be translated/annotated/indexed appropriately prior to the moderation visit. Please see the Moderation Guidance for further information.
- We are aware that some transgender or agender young people may not wish to be identified as male or female. At the moment these are the only gender options available when enrolling young people for moderation and we are working to address this. In the meantime, when providing details of any young person whom this affects the gender field can be left blank.
- A written summary of Arts Award’s approach to access and inclusion can be shared on request.
If you need any further help or guidance please contact us.
