Arts Award

What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that support 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 an art form - from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.


Arts Award is offered at five different levels – young people get to:

Discover the enjoyment of creating and participating in any art form
Develop their creativity and leadership skills
Learn new skills and share them with others
Get to work with or experience working with creative arts professionals
Gain experience and knowledge to progress into further education and employment


To achieve their Arts Award, young people take on challenges in an art form, participate in arts activities, experience arts events, get inspired by artists and share their arts skills with others. Young people create a portfolio to keep a record of their creative journey. Along the way they are supported by an Arts Award adviser acting as assessor, facilitator and mentor.

There are no entry requirements, no time limit for completing the award, and no set rules on how to present final work.
