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. For guidance on planning ahead and a handy moderation checklist, please download the Best Practice Guidebook.
Before booking a moderation you should ensure you have registered or linked to an Arts Award 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 centre portal and click 'Request a Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold moderation' on the portal homepage. For full guidance on how to access and use the centre portal, please download the centre portal guidance.
