Next steps

Confirm the names of the young people being moderated:

Fill in the attached mass enrolment spreadsheet and email back to

Deadline for confirming names is 3 weeks before the moderation date. Once names have been confirmed this is the minimum number of young people you will be charged for.

You can substitute or add names up until 7 days prior to the moderation date. After 7 days you cannot make any further changes.

Please remember that when you confirm the names of young people being moderated you must correctly indicate which trained Arts Award adviser has assessed each candidate’s portfolio and all advisers must be linked to your centre. Providing incorrect information at this point will lead to your moderation timings being calculated inaccurately. 


Please note

§  Each individual centre booked on to a joint moderation will pay a minimum fee of £110. All of the centres booked on to the moderation date, combined, must reach the overall minimum fee of £385.

Should the centres combined not meet the overall fee of £385, the balance due will be split equally between all centres and you will receive an additional invoice for your share.


Preparing for your moderation

§  Please download the moderation handbook, which is packed full of useful practical information for advisers preparing for a successful moderation

§  Please check that you are using the most recent toolkit when delivering and then assessing your young people’s Arts Award portfolios as this is the toolkit that you will be moderated from. The most up to date toolkit is fourth edition (Feb 2014) for Bronze, Silver and Gold. If you are using older editions you can download the updated pages by going to or purchase a new toolkit.


§  Check the centre resources area of the website for useful resources including blank adviser assessment report forms and evidence checklists
