Adviser training options

Who is it for and how does it work?

Online Arts Award adviser training is for anyone who wants to guide children or young people through any level of Arts Award. There are three different online courses: 

… each comprising an interactive webinar and an independent learning task.

Specialised adviser training courses are also on offer for anyone who wants to deliver Arts Award to children or young people who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Whichever course you choose, you'll start your online training by completing the 'Introduction to Arts Award' module in your own time. You also need to read the Arts Award adviser Toolkit for your chosen level(s) – we will let you know which sections to focus on when we email it to you, once your booking is confirmed.

You'll then join an expert trainer and other aspiring Arts Award advisers in a live webinar – three hours for Arts Award Discover & Explore and Gold training, and four hours for Arts Award Bronze and Silver.

Included in every training course is an independent learning module titled 'Introduction to Arts Award.' This module needs to be complete before the scheduled webinar session. It covers:

  • information about Arts Award qualifications
  • suitable art forms for Arts Award
  • key terms you need to know when delivering Arts Award
