Arts Award

Arts Award offers young people an inspiring arts journey. Arts Award’s unique qualifications support young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. The programme develops their creativity, leadership and communication skills. Through working towards an award young people learn to work independently, helping them to prepare for further education and employment.

 

Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England.
