It's been a great year so far for Arts Award and a lot it's been happening in the last few months. Here are just some of the highlights and new opportunities from Trinity College London:

Forums on the adviser hub

Forums have now gone live on the adviser hub, so advisers can ask questions and share practice on there in the same way as the ones that featured on the Artsmark network. You can create a login here.

Good Practice Centres 2015-2016

Applications for the 2015-2016 Arts Award Good Practice Centre programme are now open. Trinity College London will be selecting centres from across the country to advocate for Arts Award and inspire others with their practice. You can read the brief here for more information and please share this information. Centres can apply online up until Friday 26 June.

Recruitment of moderators

Applications for new moderators have just been re-opened. This year we have adjusted the timings for when recruitment will take place to provide them with an opportunity to engage moderators in a shadow moderation before the next annual conference and peak period. The training and recruitment of new moderators will take place in November this year and we hope to have them ready to moderate by January 2016. Information about the role, how to apply and the recruitment process is available on the Arts Award website.
