Is my Arts Award moderation going ahead?
Following the latest UK government advice about the need for increased social distancing and avoiding non-essential travel, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all moderations scheduled to take place between 18 March and 30 April. Please make your centre and young people aware of this change in plans at your earliest opportunity to ensure you prevent as many people as possible travelling in for the moderation.
Please note that postal moderations are also currently suspended, as we are not able to ensure the health and safety of moderators and staff attending the postal moderation venues.
We are in contact with affected centres to discuss the possibility of either postponing moderations to a later date, or offering alternative moderation options, which are currently being prepared.
What about Discover certificate orders?
Currently Discover certificate orders are running as usual. Please refer to our page for Discover submissions for instructions.
Is my Arts Award training course going ahead?
Following the latest government advice about the need for increased social distancing and avoiding non-essential travel, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all adviser training scheduled to take place between 18 March and 30 April.
We are in contact with affected people to discuss the possibility of either postponing adviser training to a later date, or offering alternative adviser training options, which will become available in the coming days.
Should I book in my moderation or training place for the summer term?
We are happy to take bookings for 1 May onwards, though these may be postponed or transfered to our alternative options at a later date if needed.
My students are unable to complete part of their Arts Award what can I do?
We understand that many activities may be in a state of flux due to the developing situation. We would encourage you to look at alternative options, where possible to do things remotely and online - we have a blog with some recommendations for you here and plan a webinar to support you as well. If you have any young people who will be leaving your setting shortly or who need to use the UCAS points associated with Gold in 2020 please do get in touch with us at email@example.com giving your centres name and number and detailing your issues. We will deal with these situations on a case by case basis.
