Industry Liaison Groups (ILG)
The Industry Liaison Group is a group which comprises members of the course team and significant external expertise, including major employers and staff from accrediting organisations. The ILG meets at least once each year but, more importantly, supports regular contact between the course team and its chosen representatives from industry and its profession.
The expectation is that the ILG will inform curriculum development, and offer professional advice on developments within the discipline. This enables the Arts University to ensure that courses continue to be professionally relevant, and to produce graduates who are able to meet the changing demands of the creative industries.
The ILG has no formal powers, and does not approve the course or its outcomes. It advises the course team on the profession, and employer requirements, to ensure that graduates are well prepared. However, the course team retains responsibility for the course, as approved by the University, which also has to meet the national requirements for academic honours or foundation degrees.
Industry specialists who are interested in participating in the ILG for this course should contact the Course Leader – Lisa Richardson on firstname.lastname@example.org
