Whilst employability has become one of the main drivers in Audio education globally and in particular in the UK, the meaningful input of employers and/or practitioners into student work is inconsistent. This project, commissioned by the UK Higher Education Academy and carried out by Coventry University aims to highlight the potential benefits of embedding employer and/or practitioner into the development of student portfolios. Through a distinct two phase engagement, it seeks to examine whether the relevance and quality of student work, together with their aspiration and performance is improved by industry-orientated involvement.
