Online moderation is available to all group sizes and any combination of levels of Arts Award.
For online moderation we request a sample of portfolios to be submitted for moderation, and not the work of all the young people enrolled.
The date advertised for booking is the sample confirmation date (SCD) when we will confirm with you the young people’s names whose portfolios/arts logs have been selected to be sampled. How do SCDs work?
Centres book onto one of our publicly advertised sample confirmation dates and submit sample portfolios/arts logs digitally via online link.
Online work must be fully viewable online without the need to download any files or log in to access (unless you wish to provide log in details).Note: By booking onto an online moderation, you provide consent that:
If you are unable to consent to the above, you must select an alternative moderation option.
Online moderations are subject to our per-person moderation fees, and there are no additional, or minimum/maximum fees.

To book on a sample confirmation date, log into the centre portal and follow the 'Request a Explore/Bronze/Silver/Gold moderation' link to begin the booking process.
The currently available sample confirmation dates can be found below.
Places on each date are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and dates close 3 weeks prior to the advertised date or as soon as they reach capacity. Dates are available year-round and released on a rolling basis, meaning that as one closes, another will open.
