Artsmark is the only creative quality standard for schools and education settings, accredited by Arts Council England. The programme supports settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to arts and cultural education.

One of the key benefits of registering for Artsmark is the ongoing support it provides for teachers, senior leaders and school governors. This ranges from CPD sessions, online and telephone support and accessing a large network of schools and arts and cultural organisations.

As our programme develops, we hear about so many inspiring stories from schools about how they are using arts and creativity to develop and enhance their provision and improving the health and wellbeing of their staff and pupils. These will not only inspire other settings, they also help advocate for the Artsmark programme and the value of cultural education.

Therefore, we are seeking an education media partner to develop a collaborative partnership with. In particular, to create and develop an inspiring online ‘hub’ that will help us:
•Raise awareness of Artsmark and drive up registrations
•Make the case for arts and cultural education
•Support teachers and senior leaders to deliver high quality arts and cultural provision
