Details of training and moderation opportunities can be found below.



Arts Award trainers and training agencies

All Arts Award advisers must successfully complete a training course accredited by Trinity College London before they can support young people to work towards an Arts Award. Training courses are provided by licensed Arts Award training agencies. They work with specialist trainers who run half-day and full-day courses at various Arts Award levels. To find out more about adviser training courses please go to our training pages.

We are not currently looking to expand the number of training agencies or trainers delivering courses, although if you are interested in finding out more about how training agencies/trainers work or would like to express your interest in this area then please contact the Arts Award Training Team Leader on 020 7820 4753. 


Arts Award moderators 

Trinity welcomes applications from arts practitioners and arts educators interested in becoming Arts Award moderators. You should have at least five years full-time professional experience in a relevant field, experience of assessment in the arts and ideally have already completed Arts Award Bronze/Silver adviser training.

We are looking for professionals with a wide range of knowledge across the art forms, and interest in contemporary youth culture. You will have an ability to travel widely and independently in the UK on a flexible range of days, usually moderating at least 10-12 sessions including at least six days during the last two weeks of June and the first three weeks of July. The work will involve conducting moderation of assessments made locally by Arts Award advisers.

Arts Award moderators are selected based on Trinity's need in particular locations across the country, specialisms, a range of assessment experience as well as knowledge/experience of Arts Award in practice. 

Arts Award moderation is undertaken on an individual basis by self-employed professionals.    

The recruitment and training process is detailed below and the current daily rate for Arts Award Moderators is £236.00 plus expenses, with the half day rate being £125.50. 

 The recruitment process is as follows:

  • Shortlisted applicants are invited to a phone interview with a senior moderator
  • Pre training quiz
  • Training and recruitment day (2 days)
  • Post training standardisation task

Applicants invited to join the moderation panel will be supported by a senior moderator at their first moderation.

Applications are selected based on regional demand.

Applications are currently closed as we are not currently looking to recruit any new moderators. However, if you would be interested in this role in future please register your interest here and you will be informed when applications re-open.

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Arts Award moderator.
