Through Arts Award, young people gain a nationally recognised qualification enabling them to progress into further education and employment. They not only gain art form knowledge and understanding but also develop leadership, creativity and communication skills.
Arts Award is a personal learning framework that accredits students’ individual development in the arts.
Arts Award also provides measurable CPD opportunities for staff as well as enabling schools to make meaningful links with their local arts organisations, and vice versa. Arts Award demonstrates commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum offer, as well as contributing to SMSC requirements as defined by Ofsted.
Our Impact Study, released in 2016, demonstrated that young people completing Arts Award gained confidence, developed communication and organisational skills, and were more likely to study the arts at a higher level.
