Arts Award Explore
This award is accredited as an Entry Level 3 qualification. It is the perfect stepping stone from our introductory award, Arts Award Discover, to the Level 1 qualification, Bronze Arts Award.
Anyone aged 7 to 25 can take part. Young people collect their arts experiences in an Explore arts log as they go along, recording what they find and enjoy. Arts Award Explore will usually take about 25 hours to complete.
If you want to deliver this new level in your organisation, you will need to attend a half-day Arts Award Discover & Explore adviser training course.

Arts Award for children aged 5 and 6
We are keen to extend Arts Award Discover and Explore to even younger children so that 5 and 6 year olds can benefit from doing an introductory level award. We will shortly trial delivery of Discover to this age group with a small number of schools and other settings across the country. This trial has the direct support of Arts Council England's Bridge organisations. We will make an announcement on the Arts Award website when the programme will officially open up to this age group. In the meantime, if you are a school, you may also like to sign up to our schools e-newsletter: http://www.artsaward.org.uk/signup
