Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that support anyone 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 film making, pottery to poetry.
Through Arts Award young people gain a nationally recognised qualification enabling them to progress into further education and employment.
As they work towards Arts Award, young people collect evidence of what they have done and reflect on their experiences. Evidence can also be collected in any format that works for them and you: a folder, sketchbook, video diary, a website or blog.
Your Arts Award can be based around any arts or media activity, and you can complete it in a wide variety of settings – like youth clubs, arts centres, schools, colleges, theatres or community groups. Chamberlayne College is a recognised Arts Award Centre.
There are no entry requirements, no time limit for completing the award, and no set rules on how to present final work. Young people just need to be ready to explore new creative experiences.
Do what inspires you. It’s your Arts Award
Find out what inspires you, share your talents, and you’ll walk away with an award that makes a real difference in the world of work and the arts.
Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England. Employers and colleges recognise it as proof of your skills and commitment
