The ILP has been designed and conceived based on the input of numerous academic, clinical and research staff. The day-to-day supervision, assessment and running of individual ILPs is a responsibility that is shared by students and project supervisors. This joint responsibility is supported and overseen by an ILP Coordinator and the ILP Committee. It is the responsibility of the ILP Coordinator and the ILP Committee members to ensure that a sufficiently large and diverse pool of projects is offered. Furthermore, in conjunction with the ILP coordinator, the ILP committee is responsible for ensuring that individual projects are consistent with the goals and assessment guidelines for the ILP.
