Artsmark opens to sixth form colleges

We're thrilled to announce that Artsmark is now open to sixth form colleges following a successful pilot in 2017/18.

If you are a sixth form college offering full-time education to young people aged 16 to 19, you can now register for Artsmark.

By registering for Artsmark, your whole sixth form college can support student's personal development, use our Self-Assessment Framework to promote broad curriculum enrichment and develop partnerships with cultural organisations, other colleges and schools.

Our network of regional Bridge organisations can support you to evidence whole college involvement with the arts and measure the impact this has on your learners, staff and the wider community.

If you have any questions, please email us. Otherwise, register your sixth form college today.

Cultural education gives children and young people the opportunity to develop their creativity, both individually and collectively, and that's why our goal is for every child and young person to have the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts.

It's vital that children have the opportunity to learn and enjoy arts and culture from an early age. It develops their creativity, inspires future careers and enriches their childhood.

Artsmark Award does brilliant work in schools and education to ensure young people access a broad and balanced curriculum that includes high-quality arts and culture.
