Welcome to the Charanga and Arts Award partnership!

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in any art form – and is highly suitable for a broad range of music learning and activities.

Arts Award at Discover, Explore and Bronze levels fit well with Charanga resources to support your pupils. For example, lesson schemes and freestyle resources provide taking part activities – and pupils can provide evidence of taking part and reflect on skills learnt using YUMU. Charanga musician and composer resources can provide inspiration for finding out about artists/practitioners.

Charanga is developing new bespoke Arts Award pathways and log/portfolio resources and will be announcing the Discover resources soon.

Arts Award qualifications are regulated by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) in England, CCEA Regulation in Northern Ireland and by Qualifications Wales. Find out more about Arts Award. 

If you are a Music Hub or Service planning large numbers of Arts Award please get in touch to discuss options for support.

Interested in becoming an Arts Award centre?
If your school / music service is not already a registered Arts Award centre you’ll need at least one person from your organisation to complete a training course to become an Arts Award adviser. Find out more about adviser training and book a course.
