Arts Award

Wiltshire library service is now an Arts Award Supporter

  • Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification that aims to help young people aged seven to 25 to explore their creative skills, and develop as artists and arts leaders
  • There are five different levels to achieve, four of which (Explore, Bronze, Silver and Gold) are accredited qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF). Discover is an introductory level
  • Taking part in Arts Award gives children and young people a chance to explore and engage with the Arts and cultural activity in a fun way, learn new skills, share achievements and gain nationally recognised accreditation. There is no requirement to be a skilled artist as the Award recognises individual development and encourages children to explore interests from any starting point
  • Young people work towards their awards using Arts Award centres as a base, in addition to working independently
Close
  • It's an organisation offering activities that young people can access to provide experiences of the Arts as part of their Award journey
  • If you are already doing your Arts Award, all our libraries can be a resource for research with access to quality information about artists and arts professionals – as well as a large county collection of books we have online reference resources via our 24 hour library
Close
  • A variety of activities and events to attend
  • The chance to share favourite authors by attending a book group (Chippenham library)
  • Volunteering opportunities for 14+ with the Summer Reading Challenge
  • Space to display artwork in some larger libraries (subject to availability)
