Creative Arts Graduate Placement Scheme: Model of success

Noonan, Adrienne



The Creative Arts Graduate Placement Scheme (2007-2009) served as a model for the UWE 2010 Graduate Internship Scheme, which sponsored 400 paid internships – the most of any University - through a successful HEFCE (ECIF) bid. By sharing best-practice and intelligence gathered from CA-GPS, the University’s Careers Unit was able to respond quickly to funding and graduate demands.

Of these 400 internships, a high percentage (20%+) of these internships are in the creative sector. This case study investigates whether this statistic reflects a direct correlation to close industry links, networks and support of the CA-GPS. The study also compares performance and retention with the CA-GPS, and aims follow up with current and past participants.

[This case study is currently in draft form, and will serve the basis of an ADM-HEA 2011/12 'Graduates with Impact' bid.]
