Creative Attributes Framework for Enterprise and Employability – Pilot

Creative attributesThe Exchange is delighted to introduce a new pilot Creative Attributes Framework, which explains how enterprise and employability learning forms a core part of the curriculum in arts, design and media degrees at University of the Arts London (UAL).

A UAL HEA funded project, the framework is currently in consultation at UAL during 2015/16 in order to test and evaluate the impact of the framework and recommendations for embedding within the curriculum.

The Exchange, in collaboration with Quality will be piloting the framework with course teams during 2015/16 to support validation, re-validation, review, and minor modifications.

The framework demonstrates how, through our curriculum, we empower our students and graduates to develop the wide-ranging qualities, experience and behaviours that prepare them for the future and enable them to develop and sustain a rewarding professional life.

To further enhance, nurture and recognise our students’ employability, individuality and entrepreneurship, the framework sets out:

  • Values that underpin how we make enterprise and employability prominent, inclusive and valued as part of a creative education. 
  • Attributes that enable our students to develop and sustain a rewarding professional life.

A digital resource for enterprise and employability to support course teams in using the framework for their subject will be piloted in February 2016.

To discuss the framework or get involved please contact: Cara Lee Roth Educational Developer:
