A standard moderation takes place at your venue on your preferred date and time, making it a very flexible moderation option.
What happens on the day of the moderation?
A moderator will come to your centre where they will speak to the adviser(s), look through a sample of the portfolios/arts logs and meet with the young people (25% of the group up to a maximum of 10, or 15 for groups of 80+)
How much does it cost?
Centres entering for a standard moderation must meet the moderation minimum fee. This means that the numbers you are entering for moderation must reach or exceed this fee.
If your entries do not meet the minimum fee, you will be charged a sub charge to meet the minimum fee for this type of moderation.
If you do not meet the minimum fee, you may wish to look at other moderation options, as there may be more cost-effective option for your centre.
How do I book?
A standard moderation can be requested at any time of year through logging into the adviser portal. At a minimum, we require 8 weeks advance notice for this type of moderation. The more notice you give, the more likely it is that we will be able to meet your requirements.
Before booking a moderation you should ensure all advisers entering young people are linked to the centre. Find out more about registering or linking to an Arts Award centre.
What happens next?
Arts Award will send you a booking confirmation e-mail within 3 working days after receiving your request. This e-mail will be sent to the adviser who has requested the moderation. If you have not received your confirmation booking email within 3 working days, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Certificates will be sent within 4 weeks from your moderation date, subject to payment.
