Support for Schools

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.
- Deliver Bronze or Explore in five days as part of a special project or arts week using our Five day Bronze and Five sessions to Explore resources to plan your programme.
- Support young people in challenging circumstances through Arts Award. We have a range of resources that explore using Arts Award in non-mainstream settings such as using Arts Award in therapeutic practice settings, with young people who are outside of mainstream education due to illness, or using Arts Award for young people who are NEET.
- Deliver via one of our partnership projects. We have partnerships and alliances with a number of national organisations which allow you to deliver Arts Award alongside their programmes, including Shakespeare Schools Festival, the Duke of Edinburgh Award and BBC Ten Pieces. See our Partner page for more.
- Demonstrate Ofsted framework criteria though your delivery of Arts Award. This resource explores the links between the Arts Award framework and the Ofsted school inspection handbook.
- Deliver Arts Award as part of the Arts Mark journey with this helpful guide.
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
