Arts Award Discover is an introductory award, certificated by Trinity College London, and is not a regulated qualification. This means that the adviser’s assessment is final and no moderation needs to be booked to validate the adviser’s assessment. Unless an issue is identified with a centre, Trinity does not carry out an additional check of the assessment or young people's work.
To request certificates for Arts Award Discover, centres submit details of the young people their adviser(s) have assessed to have met the assessment criteria for the award.
How much does it cost?
The cost for Discover certificates is £4 per person.
