Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for young people aged between 5 and 25. Arts Award can be based around any arts or media activity, and can be completed it in a wide variety of settings – like youth clubs, arts centres, schools, colleges, theatres or community groups.
We are committed to providing arts education to ensure young people push themselves and really engage with the arts. We can support all levels of Arts Award for part or all of an award, working in collaboration to develop and deliver a project that is relevant and inspiring.
There are five levels of Arts Award suitable for ages 5 to 25, four of which are on the Regulated Qualifications Framework, (Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold). Members of National Glass Centre and Arts Centre Washington staff are trained advisers at all levels, both venues are an Arts Award Supporter and National Glass Centre is a registered Arts Award Centre. Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
