What is Large group training?

Large group Arts Award adviser training is for organisations and partnerships that want their training tailored to their Arts Award delivery plans.

This tailored training option is ideal for groups of 6 - 12 people who intend to offer Arts Award in the same, or a similar, situation – for example:

  • in the same type of setting, such as schools, Music Education Hubs and Services, museums or libraries
  • to a targeted group, perhaps FE students or children with additional needs
  • in the same art form, for instance visual art, dance or music
  • on a large scale.

There are many advantages to large group training, including:

  • your choice of date and time
  • delivered face-to-face or online
  • a trainer with specialist skills and knowledge of your sector and training needs

Just like our scheduled Arts Award adviser training courses, our large group training covers all you need to know about delivering and assessing Arts Award. All trainees must complete our 'Introduction to Arts Award' module before the live training day.

You can book large group training at all Arts Award levels. You'll pay a 20% discounted price per person and we will cover the trainer fee for you*.

When you book, our team will work with you to select the right trainer from our panel. Before your course you'll have the opportunity to brief your trainer on your specific plans and requirements.

If you would like to discuss in more detail, you can contact the Arts Award training team directly to ask about making a booking 
*Surcharge added if face-to-face training to cover travel and accommodation.

(We don't offer different combinations outside of our usual training courses – for instance Bronze and Gold together or Explore alone.)
