Arts Award Access and Inclusion ProgrammeAssociate Member www.artsaward.org.uk
The Arts Award Access and Inclusion programme aims to increase young people’s engagement with Arts Award outside mainstream settings and in challenging circumstances. Arts Award offers a creative, enjoyable and alternative way to achieve a qualification, and is a good way of introducing the arts for the first time – or recognising and accrediting young people’s existing arts interests. Young people can use visual, audio and digital formats to create portfolios, which means those with low literacy levels can participate and achieve. Arts Award supports personal and social development, preparing the way for education and employment.
