Story Clubs

Our Story Clubs are focused on raising aspirations and developing confidence in young people through after school clubs in libraries, communities and all types of schools. For more information about our story clubs in schools please contact Lauren Ash, Creative Director at lauren@wearechol.co.uk

Arts Award

We are a registered Arts Award Centre and Supporter and can offer activities for children and young people who are working towards their Arts Award or take your young people through the process from start to finish.

Arts Award is a nationally recognised qualification for children and young people aged 7 – 25 years old. Members of our team are trained to deliver up to Gold Awards. Arts Award can be delivered in a number of different ways: embedded into the curriculum, a lunchtime or after school club or part of a special arts week at your school. For more information on Arts Award please visit Arts Award homepage.

Arts Mark

We are also an Artsmark partner and can support you on your Artsmark journey. Each of our programmes and workshops embed the 7 Quality Principles to support schools to achieve their Artsmark Award. Our workshop style uses collaborative and co-creating methodologies as we work as ‘equal players’ to allow participants to engage with the curriculum, create artwork and develop confidence. For more information visit IVE Artsmark Partners.
