Workshop: An introduction to building a business and school partnership


Time: to


More businesses than ever are working with schools and young people from providing insights into the world of work, senior business people becoming school governors to supporting a school sports day.

All interventions are valuable but longer-term needs-led strategic partnerships can provide deeper impact for both the business and school. 

The purpose of the workshop 

  • Receive an introduction to school and business partnerships including the business case – why would a business do it? 
  • Explore the key principles behind what makes a successful school and business partnership 
  • Consider the variety of activity which can be undertaken with a school, the pros and cons 
  • See some examples of real school and business partnerships and consider the pros and cons of different approaches 

The workshop will be of most benefit to participants who: 

  • are new or just starting to think about working with schools
  • have already started working with a school(s) but want to explore how to drive greater benefit for the business, school(s), pupils and wider community. 
  • want to explore different ways of managing school and business partnerships 

Who should attend?

  • Members that are senior manager level within an SME 
  • Members that are senior manager or middle manager level in larger companies, usually within human resources, corporate or community affairs
