Caroline Bray, London's Arts Award Regional Development Co-ordinator, will continue in her role but will transfer as a member of staff to A New Direction. Arts Award is a national qualification at three levels which supports young people to develop as artists and arts leaders. Young people aged 11-25 of all abilities and interests can gain Arts Awards through any art form. It is run through a partnership between Arts Council England and Trinity Guildhall. Nine Regional Development Co-ordinators support the award in each English region.

A New Direction's work is driven by young Londoners, with a strong focus on supporting young people in the development of skills related to employment within the creative and cultural sectors and beyond.
