Introduction to Arts Award
School Resources Pack
The resources in this pack are ordered to reflect your journey as an adviser — from identifying how Arts Award can fit within existing activities you offer to evaluating your delivery approach after moderation.
The pack includes resources to support planning for effective delivery and budgeting for a project or programme. It also provides delivery ideas, suggestions for supporting students’ progression and guidance on assessing portfolios.
Arts Award Supporter Toolkit
This toolkit will lead you step by step through creating a Supporter
offer that is based on your current work, you will not need to create
another programme of activities. It will help you feel confident in
making your offer even stronger and in promoting it to your target
audiences. Each step has tools to guide you through the process.
Throughout this toolkit there are links to extra resources and information designed to help you build your supporter offer - these resources look at Arts Award Supporter in more depth and complement all the activities in this toolkit.
Arts Award fits in well alongside graded music exams as well as being a stand-alone qualification, and offers a useful framework for music practitioners and educators. Find out more by downloading the resources below.
