Creative Attributes Framework provides guidance for embedding and enhancing enterprise and employability within the curriculum at University of the Arts London.

The framework provides a structure to inform staff, students, and other stakeholders how students and graduates 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.
