Abstract

In the UK the creative economy is worth an estimated 85-90 billion pounds a year, a figure likely to grow in 2018-19. Despite this, recent higher education debates and the compulsory move towards EBacc subjects in STEM have focused around the direct economic return of certain economic options that reflect a less diverse general and higher education system and a miss match of pupil’s attributes and their education potential and a readiness to withstand increased automation within the workplace. (Last, J. 2017) Should there be a concerted effort towards STEAM and ADaM (Art Design and Media) and if so how can creative activities such as drawing critical within design be useful not just as an arts based subject but assume parity with STEM and core, student’s lifelong learning and the nation’s economy in the 21st century increasingly dominated by new technologies such as VR and AR?
