Arts Award is a national qualification which supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Young people aged 11-25 can gain awards through any cultural activity. Many arts organisations embed Arts Award into their education and youth work.

Becoming an Arts Award centre is a great way to:

  • Kick-start a new arts project
  • Use a clear framework for your existing work with young people
  • Enable young people to work towards a national qualification
  • Engage more young people in the arts and challenge them to develop their creativity and leadership skills
