Published in 2013, the study looks back to a report commissioned in 1999 to compare approaches to professional practice delivery in fine and applied arts courses. It assesses what effect, if any, the then impending tuition fee rise and focus on enterprise and employability had on PP delivery, and identifies the role a-n can play in supporting student learning in the future. Raises the question of whether a more open, value-driven, localised and geographically-spread arts ecology has opportunity to emerge in place of the dominant London-centred value system.
