Specifically we:

  • organise ‘in-house’ training for staff, other professionals and community co-ordinators.
  • including Arts Awards within targets for young people’s accreditation.
  • incorporating support for the Arts Award within funding agreements with arts organisations.

Tameside is also an Arts Award Supporter organisation which enables us to offer support for Children and Young People across all of our cultural services. This is an area of the programme we intend to develop further in the coming months.
