You can more find stories from young people on Arts Award Voice, our online magazine for young people aged 13 to 25. You can search for case studies, and the young people you're working with can also post their own stories to share.
'In working towards the Arts Award our students learn more about themselves and their peers and begin to understand where they fit in the world around them, which is often a confusing place for a person with learning disabilities' Sharon Ainscough, Teacher, Chatsworth School
'It is unusual to see a qualification that is fully accessible to all different sorts of learners. It measures their personal journey. We offer Arts Award from Year 10 onwards timetabled and supported by lunch-time and out of hours clubs.' Keith Youngson, Deputy Head Fox Hollies Special School
