A moderation involves a moderator, trained by Trinity College London, looking at a selected sample of the young people’s work in order to validate an Arts Award adviser’s assessment.
Am I ready for moderation and how do I request a moderation?
As an Arts Award adviser, whilst planning your Arts Award project with your young people, you should also be thinking ahead to when you think your young people’s work will be ready for moderation.
Before booking a moderation you should ensure you are linked to an Arts Award centre (find out more about registering or linking to a centre). There are a number of moderation options available and these vary depending on the number of young people you are working with and the level of Arts Award you are working on.
When you are ready to request a moderation, you will need to log in to the adviser portal and click 'Request a Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold moderation' on the portal homepage. For full guidance on how to access and use the adviser portal, please download the adviser portal guidance.
