Looking Out Project report now online

Looking-Out is a major research project undertaken by the Art Design Media Subject Centre (ADM-HEA) and supported the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). It arose from recommendations in the Creative Britain: New Talents for a New Economy strategy paper published in February 2008. In the light of growing recognition of the valuable contribution our Creative and Cultural Industries make to the UK economy, Looking-Out focuses on levels of engagement between art, design and media higher education (Arts HE) and individuals, businesses and organisations in creative and cultural sectors (Creative Industries).

Looking Out included a survey of Arts HE departments to determine the number and types of courses, number of students and teachers and range and types of engagement, this generated 108 responses from seventy-five HEIs. A survey of teachers generated 239 responses. We ran ten focus groups with 122 participants and have provided case studies of engagements between Arts HE and creative industry businesses, organisations and individuals. Finally we undertook an extensive review of policy and research literature related to employer engagement, work-based learning and workforce development.
