Policies & Quality Assurance

Bursary policy

Wac Arts uses the arts to empower young people to transcend the barriers they face to opportunity and in so doing, plays its part to reduce persistent inequality in our society. In practice two principles are used to inform our decision-making:

  1. Classes and activities are priced at levels to ensure they are genuinely affordable for people and families on low incomes
  2. Everyone at Wac Arts pays the same fee regardless of their ability to pay

Wac Arts can offer bursary support to the following:

  • The recipient is currently in care or is a care leaver
  • The recipient is aged between 4-30 and currently seeking asylum in the UK
  • The recipient is a full-time carer for a parent or sibling
  • The parent/ guardian/ young person is in receipt of universal credit

Our Bursary Fund has reached its capacity, and as a result we are unable to accept new applicants. We understand the importance of financial assistance, and we encourage those interested in accessing our Bursary Fund to join our waiting list. In the event of additional Bursary Funding becoming available, we will notify individuals on the waiting list. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we strive to support as many young people as possible.

All of Wac Arts classes adhere to our Quality Code, and tutors plan an annual curriculum of content that aligns with our Aims of Participation. Wac Arts has regular sharing’s of the class work, an end of year sharing in our large performance space, other external performance opportunities and our annual achievement awards. We survey our students, parents & guardians annually and evaluate this feedback to improve and grow our programme offer. Our tutors are observed three times per year to ensure the continued development and growth of the young people who choose to study with us. We have excellent facilities with full disabled access at our building in Belsize Park, as well as tutors who are passionate an committed to the growth and development of each of our students.
