Trinity College London is working with the Institute for Policy Studies in Education (IPSE) at London Metropolitan University, to survey hundreds of Arts Award participants to track the impact of taking part in Arts Award.

It's not too late to get your group involved and are keen to ensure that all the different Arts Award centres across London are represented.

There are three ways to get involved:

  • A questionnaire for Arts Award advisers
  • Interviews and focus groups either over the phone or with young people
  • An online survey for young people to complete

Your feedback will help to develop and promote Arts Award in the future. At a time when arts education is facing challenges, we want to make the case for resources, support and accreditation for our young people!

Calling advisers

Complete the online survey here – it'll take you about 15-20 minutes.

Deadline for completion is Wednesday 13 March 2013.

Calling young people

If you are in the early stages of your Arts Award project during February or March then please ask your group to complete the young people's questionnaire here. If you would prefer to use paper questionnaires, please contact the research team at IPSE at

Deadline for completion is Wednesday 13 March 2013.


The research team is also planning in-depth phone interviews with advisers and senior managers and looking for centres to host a focus group of 5-7 young people for a session lasting approximately 45 minutes. IPSE will ask permission to track individuals after the focus group. Interested? Please register your interest here.

This is the start of a three year tracking project but the interim findings will be shared with you along the way.

Thank you for your support – it will make a big difference to the future for Arts Award.
