Arts Award supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through setting personal challenges in an art form of their choice.

It offers national qualifications that enable young people to progress into further education and employment. Young people not only gain art form knowledge and understanding but also develop leadership, creativity and communication skills.

There are five Arts Award Levels:

  • Discover – for age 5 and above
  • Explore – for age 7 and above
  • Bronze – for age 11 and above
  • Silver – for age 14 and above
  • Gold – for age 16 and above
