Young people felt more engaged and motivated to progress in their education. 3 out 5 said they better understood the options for a career or for further study in the arts after completing Arts Award. This was especially true at Gold level.
Of those interviewed, every young person and alumnus reported some positive impact of Arts Award on their personal and social skills also. Many reported making new friends; moreover, they learnt communication skills which they could apply in a professional context. Fundamentally, this was about engaging with people beyond their usual circle of friends or classmates. 10

More than 80% of young people reported that Arts Award had a positive impact on their communication and people skills, such as leading a project, working in a group, and sharing opinions and listening to others.
Before the Arts Award I was kind of like really shy and I didnt speak at all and if I did, when I did, it was actually a whisper, so now I can talk normally which I find really helpful. (Leanne)
