Supporting the curriculum

UAL teaching

Find out about programmes and resources that support academic and teaching staff to develop and embed enterprise and employability learning in the curriculum.

Key programmes

Teaching enhancement workshops and events

We regularly develop events for staff and external networks.

Support for validation and revalidation

We support courses through review, validation and revalidation. This includes development and feedback with course teams to better articulate and embed employment and enterprise within the curriculum and guidance for writing course handbooks.

Contact the Careers and Employability College and Curriculum Manager for details of the validation and revalidation support workshops on offer.

Creative Attributes Framework

The Creative Attributes Framework provides guidance for embedding and enhancing enterprise and employability within the curriculum at UAL. It provides a structure that informs staff, students and other stakeholders how students and graduates can develop the qualities, experience and behaviours needed to prepare them for the future and develop - and sustain a rewarding professional life.

Co-curricular workshops

Our Enterprise and Employability Practitioners offer co-curricular workshops and presentations, which are open to all UAL courses. They are experienced educators who regularly facilitate learning opportunities and deliver a wide range of workshops and presentations throughout the academic year. They collaborate extensively with course teams - find out who to contact for your College.

Intellectual property

CreativeIP.org is an online resource that provides information, case studies, articles and learning support on intellectual property (IP) for creative professionals. You can help your students and graduates to understand how they can protect and manage their IP by referring them to the site.

In addition, our Intellectual Property Lecturer offers extra-curricular and co-curricular intellectual property workshops, which are open to all UAL courses.

Support for visual artists

One of the most comprehensive resources in the UK, artquest.org.uk provides the professional information, advice and projects that visual artists need to understand the art world. Their free e-book Primer covers everything you need to know within your first couple of years after graduation including: finding and working with galleries; meeting curators; understanding your rights; living in London on a low income; finding a studio; maintaining a network; and useful organisations.

The Source is a pedagogic framework and teaching resources developed by Artquest and Wimbledon college of Arts. It supports art tutors to deliver enterprise and employability sessions that are relevant to their students’ art practices.

Support for graduates

Careers and Employability supports graduates for up to 5 years after they leave UAL. In addition to being able to attend most of our events, graduates can contact our Graduate Developer for bespoke one-to-one careers advice.
