MAC is a registered Arts Award centre. The MAC Makes Music programme supports children and young people to achieve Arts Award accreditations and supports partners to deliver this through the offer of subsidised training and support.

We have adopted a creative approach to the Arts Award which means that the majority of the portfolios we submit are electronic, using photos, video and audio as evidence. As a lively arts centre, with a busy schedule of courses, film and performances, we often invite groups on tours and to events as part of the Arts Award process.

In 2017-18 we supported 182 young people from Special Schools and Pupil Referral Units to complete Arts Award qualifications.
