This paper discusses the experiences of three stakeholders involved in live projects (live projects are part of an industry and education partnership to provide level 2 students with an opportunity to work with "real life" business problem situations). In particular the paper examines the expectations and perceptions of industry partners, tutors and students involved in a live project experience at Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies (BCFTCS). From a comparison of these stakeholder perspectives it can be suggested that although a more self-managed approach to student learning is desirable, it is not always achievable with large student groups and time-constrained activities. Despite this, the students appeared to have further developed the desired skills of communication, teamwork, problem solving and research, as well as the personal attributes of greater self-confidence and leadership.
