Who is the course for and can I attend?

This course is for adults who want to broaden their knowledge and skills to become Gold Arts Award advisers.

Advisers are crucial to Arts Award. They need to communicate with children and young people successfully and offer them effective support while they are working towards their Award.

This course is suitable for anyone who works with young people aged 11 to 25 and meets the requirements outlined in the Arts Award adviser person specification.


What will I learn?

  • get familiar with the assessment criteria and framework for the Gold Arts Award (Level 3 qualification, with UCAS points)
  • meet other professionals who are planning to run Arts Award in a wide variety of settings
  • get the chance to explore case studies and examples of Gold level work
  • ask questions and consider how Arts Award may work for you in your particular setting


Do I need to bring my toolkit?

If you have previously trained at Bronze & Silver levels, please do bring your toolkit with you as Gold level is included.

However, if this is the first Arts Award adviser training course that you will be attending, a toolkit will be issued to you on the day.

You can also purchase a new edition of the toolkit from the Arts Award shop or download the latest free toolkit updates.
