Arts Award: How we can help

Arts Award is a national qualification which recognises children and young people's personal creative development.

Arts Award helps young people (aged 7-25) develop as artists and arts leaders, building creativity, leadership and communication skills. Young people can gain an Arts Award in any area of the arts, including reading and creative writing.

BookTrust is an Arts Award Supporter organisation, which means that we offer resources and events that can help young people attain the Arts Award Discover, Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. All of these except Discover are also accredited qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
