Arts Award can be used with any arts or cultural activity, and can be offered in any organisation – including schools, colleges, theatres, galleries, museums, libraries, arts centres, heritage organisations, alternative education provisions, performing groups, youth justice settings, youth clubs or community groups and healthcare services.

Advisor Training

Arts Award advisers are key to the success of Arts Award. They support children and young people work towards their awards, provide guidance, and assess their work.

Advisers can be teachers, freelance practitioners, youth workers, members of learning teams and volunteers. They need to have experience of working with young people and access to arts opportunities but don’t have to be an arts specialist.
