Happy Valentine’s Day….It’s quite appropriate that today we should focus on working partnerships as our next key activity for effective work experience strategy.
Ask yourself, how are you and your organisation with working relationships internally and across your network?
Are they productive and do they take account of local arrangements to maximise efficiency and resources?
I suggest that there needs to be a proactive commitment to partnership working and this needs to be promoted by the Work Experience Lead – identifying key contacts for work experience and initiating communication with those people and/or organisations, for example: ensuring every partner has contributed to the development and implementation of the Work Experience plans.
My final point this week is that a team working culture in an organisation would also aid the development of work experience……this maybe a bit obvious, but none the less worth mentioning.
