2008 - Council for Higher Education in Arts and Design (CHEAD)

Council for Higher Education in Arts and Design (CHEAD) 2008. In partnership with IES Employment Research has run a large scale survey of approximately 28000 graduates (completing their courses between 2002 and 2004) in art, media, craft and design subjects to explore their early career progression and the factors important in pursuing successful careers. The survey compared results with a similar survey undertaken 10 years previously in 1998 and demonstrate the longer term contribution of arts graduates.

The research involved online and paper based surveys followed up with telephone interviews and an email survey of graduates participating in the first stages of the research. Reporting on this research is due to be completed later this year.
