Trinity Champion Centres 2019-2020 announced

For the last seven years Arts Award centres have been applying to become Good Practice Centres. Chosen from across all sectors, these centres brought a breadth of experience of delivering Arts Award successfully however this year for the first time, we included our Music and Drama centres into the programme rebranding the scheme as Trinity Champion Centres. We’re excited to be introducing the Arts Award Trinity Champion Centres for 2019-2020!


What is a Trinity Champion Centre?

Trinity Champion Centres inspire existing and potential centres by sharing their practice and advocating for the qualifications in their communities and more widely. In return, we celebrate achievements, profile their success and promote their work as part of our support offer to teachers and centres.

Champion Centres are recognised by Trinity for their successful delivery of our qualifications. Ways in which this success could be demonstrated include: strong exam results, an exciting programme of performance events, impact on learners or innovation in the performing arts. Centre status is recognised by Trinity through the award of a certificate and a logo, with opportunities to showcase their creative offer throughout the year – for instance in blogs and marketing campaigns.


Introducing the centres

There are 34 Trinity Champion Centres in total, 23 Arts Award Centres and 11 Music/Drama Centres. They come from a great range of sectors, including: formal education, arts & culture, youth & community, performing arts academies and music services.

We are thrilled to have been selected as a Trinity Champion Centre for the year ahead. We hope to use this opportunity as a platform to promote the benefits of this unique qualification to other organisations and to share our dyslexia-friendly practice. Our drive is to ensure that as many dyslexic young people as possible have access to the opportunity to gain an Arts Award accreditation and make the most of their creative dyslexic strengths in a way that works for them.’ - Katie Carmichael, Career Coach, Arts Award Centre, Dyslexia Scotland
