What is Arts Award?

Arts Award is a range of accredited qualifications on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), that support anyone up to the age of 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form - from fashion to filmmaking, pottery to poetry.

A New Direction supports Arts Award in London by running pilot programmes and delivering training and support for Arts Award Advisers.
