What is an Arts Award?

Arts Award is a unique set of qualifications that support children and young people to enjoy the arts and develop as artists and arts leaders.

From film-making to fashion design, pottery to poetry or even puppetry, young people can achieve Arts Award through any art, craft or cultural activity. The award embraces traditional and emerging art forms, as well as support roles in lighting, sound, marketing and more.


Discover is an introductory level which rewards participants with a certificate. The other four qualifications are listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. Achieve Gold Arts Award and you'll have a Level 3 qualification worth 16 UCAS points.


Arts Award is open to anyone aged 25 and under, whatever their background or level of ability. Arts Awards achievers range from preschoolers to postgraduate students and all ages in between, including many with additional needs.


Arts Award isn't about reaching a certain standard in a particular art form. Instead it assesses the knowledge, understanding, creativity, communication and leadership skills young people develop through exploring the arts as a participant, audience member and reviewer. There are no fixed entry requirements, no time limits and no rules on how to present work.
