Training courses for arts and cultural professionals

CORONAVIRUS & ARTSWORK TRAINING COURSES. Last updated 30/04/2020 am: Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all open Artswork Professional Development courses are currently suspended until further notice. We are currently working on ways to provide training digitally for a number of courses, as well as looking at options for rescheduling dates later in the year. We will be updating regularly and will keep all participants fully informed as we move forward.  For more information, read our latest statement:


Artswork’s Professional Development programme offers arts, culture and education professionals at all levels a practical way of building their skills, knowledge and understanding of work with young people.

Our courses are aimed at both new and experienced arts, education and youth practitioners, and cover a wide range of topics including

  • Child Protection & Safeguarding
  • Equality & Diversity
  • Youth Arts Project Management
  • Creative Facilitation

Artswork is committed to enhancing and raising the standard of youth arts practice, and these courses have been developed through consultation with the arts, education and youth sectors. Courses take place throughout the year, and are available at a number of venues across England. Courses can also be delivered as tailored in-house training (see below). We are always interested in receiving feedback on our work, and are happy to consider the development of new courses to meet new needs.

Artswork is a registered centre for AIMAQA, and Arts Award.

In-house training

Training tailored to your organisations needs

If you have more than four staff to train or more than one topic of interest, a tailored in-house package could save you both money and time. Our in-house training package offers a flexible and efficient way to strengthen the skills, knowledge and confidence of your whole team in their work with children and young people. To view our range of training courses and consultancy services, browse our Professional Development Brochure here.


We can deliver any of our courses as in-house training, tailoring the content to meet the specific needs of your staff and organisation. Delivered by expert trainers with experience in arts, cultural and youth settings, in-house courses can be delivered anywhere in the UK for up to 25 people.

Prices for in-house training start from £850 (inclusive, price fixed until 31 March 2020).
