Graduates from creative disciplines more likely to be self-employed - 42% become self employed from 9% of the total UK graduates p.a - 37% of the self employed graduates, 6 months post-graduation A need for graduate entrepreneurship is not being met WHY?............. The creative process is compelling and has market value Creative freedom and ethical considerations Learning by Problem- solving makes independent thinkers Self-employment often the only real option

Exploring Models of Knowledge transfer & intellectual Property and R&D Linked with Arts and Humanities Research Council Locked into the Science and Innovation ten year framework policy document 2004-14 ---JUST!!!!!!! Graduate Entrepreneurship Capacity 36.8% of the 2.3% of graduates selfemployed ( 6 months post graduation) were from the creative disciplines

Least likely to have a placement opportunity Surveys show they dont feel prepared 50% of Flying Start (NCGE) applicants and participants - but they make up only 9% of the graduates in the UK (24,000) Dont respond well to traditional business models Significant potential - unrealised Cultural entrepreneurs need to develop a mix of creative and business skills often at different stages of their careers. Education institutions are often too inflexible to deliver these skills as and when the entrepreneurs need them (Leadbeater and Oakley, 1999)

EMERGENT APPROACHES FOR ENTREPRENEURIAL LEARNING IN H.E. Extra-curricular Curriculum embedded Postgraduate Programmes Assimilated/tacit learning within programmes; Bolt-on enterprise modules Continuing Professional Development (Lifelong

Learning) Short skills development courses Knowledge Transfer Partners Enterprise Centres Business start-up workshops Summer schools Incubation MA/MBA creative programmes Master of Enterprise External agency programmes NESTA Creative Pioneers, Crafts Council, Design Council, Young Enterprise, National

Council for Graduate Entreprise Flying Start etc Some great Provision but Not Enough Not the right kind Not available at the right time Too piecemeal -Not coherent Enough

Too Little understanding of current provision to make a difference THE CHALLENGES The lack of informed appropriate learning provision No coherent co-ordinated framework to inspire and inform curriculum innovation Dont know what works, where and when The cultural tensions & oppositions Lack of Incentives for curriculum innovation No focused policy framework to drive change Create a culture in HE that links creativity with commercial value SO.. What should be done????

Some Ideas .. Let us have your views TARGETED INVESTMENTS Strategic Curriculum Innovation Targeted Pilot Initiatives around the models of success - to work out what works for different sub-sectors and subject disciplines Entrepreneurship Leadership Programme National Creative Industries Enterprise Scheme coherent national development of what we have got and know Generate strategic focus -the framework- that helps prepare graduates for their portfolio careers . TARGETED INCENTIVES

Funding for entrepreneurship provision in HE Capital Investment in Facilities and Equipment Enable the graduates - Create the entrepreneurial support for their creativity INCORPORATE IN POLICY Create a national policy framework for graduate entrepreneurship in the creative industries Ensure the Creative industries are incorporated into existing policy frameworks OST, DfES, DTi,RDA Be both strategic and operational to support the growth of the sector

EMERGING ARGUMENTS The Creative Industries are the fastest growing sector of the economy in the UK It attracts an unusually high proportion of graduates, a significant proportion self-employed But the opportunities for entreprenuerial learning are limited by culture and operational factors in HE The potential is not realised- there is a gap in provision and policy to unlock the potential in HE. EMERGING SOLUTIONS But the DCMS Task Group has identified good practice It could be made more widespread. A policy framework is required that creates a vision for the development of the creative and commercial talent potential There is much to build on from the government policy

and investment in scientific entrepreneurship Invest in Curriculum Innovation and CI start-up support that is well informed by current success Enlightened focused national policy can unlock the potential An enterprising economy must be a skilled economy. So we must avoid the mistakes of the past when we failed to invest long term in education James Purnell CI Minister An enterprising economy must be a skilled economy. So we must avoid the mistakes of the past when we failed to invest long term in

education James Purnell CI Minister Given the characteristics of the creative industries, shouldnt we be investing in entrepreneurial learning to gain UK economic advantage from this fastest growing sector?
