Arts Award's flexible framework means it can be delivered in a way that works for your school. To support your delivery, we have a huge range of guidance and resources, but we want to highlight a few of the key resources for your school:

  • Make use of our comprehensive School Resource Pack. This resource is designed to take you through the Arts Award process from beginning to end, answering all of your questions along the way.  With support for large group delivery, moderation, planning, and much more, this is a must read for all schools!
  • Embed Arts Award into your curriculum by accessing our range of resources aimed at supporting you to embed Arts Award into other curriculum areas. This includes PSHE, History, KS2 Literacy, and our KS3 resources for Design and Drama, Music and Art. We also have a range of music support resources including  Discover in A Day: Music  and Delivering Explore: Music which can be used to support First Access and Whole Class Ensemble Teaching or other music projects and programmes.

  • Support students with special educational needs with our Evidencing Arts Award resource designed to inspire you by showing different ways that young people with learning difficulties have evidenced their Arts Award. It includes a range of evidencing examples including photos, film, scribed statements, creative responses, and sign and symbol-based languages.

Support for advisers

Once trained, Art Award Advisers can access a range of free support via the adviser hub

  • Case studies – search our case study bank to get ideas and inspiration for projects
  • Resources – all our support resources, including Portfolio Building Templates and Evidence Checklists, are held together in one place and are easily browsed or searchable by key words.
  • Support – find out about the support on offer including support sessions and webinars.

Please note: the resources on this page are planning tools only and should not be used as a substitute for the adviser toolkit. In order to deliver Arts Award, you must have completed adviser training at the appropriate level. Book a place on a training course
