Anna Jones – Arts Award Qualifications – Enabling Young People's Creativity, Leadership and Communication

About the Session

Find out more about Arts Award – a set of unique qualifications for young people aged up to 25, which can be achieved at five levels: Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The awards framework helps young people to develop as arts leaders. The awards enable and assess young people’s creative, communication and leadership skills.
Arts Award can be delivered in a wide variety of contexts – including schools, youth groups, arts, cultural and heritage organisations and across all art forms. Through Artswork, the Arts Award Leadership Network is a growing movement of organisations and leaders across the South East dedicated to the sustainable development of Arts Award across all settings and levels. Since the scheme began, combined Arts Award moderations have increased across participants within the network by up to 250%.
