Enter for Discover

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award, which means that the adviser’s assessment is final, and no moderation is required 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 view any of the young people's work.

How much does it cost?

The cost for Discover certificates is £4.70 per person (for the period of September 2023 - August 2024). For further information, large group discounts and September 2024 - August 2025 costs, see Qualification fees
