Partnerships are a key part of the engagement landscape and can take many forms. Whilst working in effective partnerships can bring many benefits to both parties, such as increased perspective, higher quality and relevant research, how do you get started? And how do you ensure that the partnerships you develop are effective for all involved? 

This course is ideal for researchers keen to develop their partnership work. Find out how to navigate the working in partnership landscape, from identifying whether working in partnership is right for you; exploring the range of different types of relationship you might develop; navigating challenges; and ensuring that partnerships you participate in are mutually beneficial – the course covers all you need to know to develop effective partnerships.

Learning objectives

  • Understand the value of partnerships, and when they are the right approach for your work
  • Develop skills to deliver mutually beneficial partnerships from setting the foundations, to manage endings well
  • Understand potential challenges to working in partnership, and how these might be addressed
  • Identify potential partners and know how to approach
  • Explore the different types of partnerships that you can develop, from informal relationships to long term approaches
