ADeC has been successfully delivering the Arts Award since 2008.  We have worked with a wide range of young people to help them achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.

By being involved with ADeC projects and events our Arts Award students have completed their awards in many different art forms. These include: music, drama, photography, dance, film making and event management.

The flexibility of the award has allowed us to deliver it with young people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. This has included helping sixth form students gain valuable UCAS points, working with young bands to organise gigs, supporting the Traveller community to engage in arts projects and helping young promoters stage community events.

It has been wonderful to give young people advice, support and encouragement through the Arts Award scheme and to watch them develop as talented arts practitioners and confident arts leaders. A number of young people have progressed through Bronze, Silver and Gold levels with ADeC and now play an important role in helping us run our project and event’s programme.

ADeC is an Arts Award Supporter.

This means that any young people doing their Arts Award or wishing to find out more about the award can contact us for support. This includes:

• Getting involved with ADeC workshops

• Coming to ADeC events and exhibitions and writing reviews

• Getting help to find out about artists and cultural opportunities

• Having a chance to share skills or lead an ADeC arts project

• Volunteering at ADeC events

• Seeing and working behind the scenes at ADeC events

ADeC is also an Arts Award adviser training centre giving people the opportunity to work with young people to enable them to achieve the qualification. For more information on training dates and requirements please check the Arts Award website.




















Training: ADeC is a regional Arts Award Advisor training centre.

Bronze and Silver Adviser training: This course is for adults who want to become Arts Award advisers. Advisers are crucial to Arts Award. They need to communicate with young people successfully and offer them effective support while they are working towards their Award.
