Abstract

A 'career progression tool' concept was developed as a possible way to disseminate the research findings. An evaluation ofthis tool by selected students, staffand a careers advisor from the Robert Gordon University highlighted its usefulness as a strategy for disseminating bespoke careers information based on graduates' real experiences.

This research extends the findings of previous research into art and design graduate careers and provides a valuable insight into contemporary practices. The research encourages II E institutions to re-evaluate current curriculum and undertake periodic research into the livelihoods of their graduates to allow undergraduates to gain specialist career knowledge through the experiences of their peers.
