partnership working is crucial for all those involved in work based learning promoting increased understanding and more effective delivery


In this section of the WBL Toolkit, different tools and products are provided with a view to:

  • confirming the importance of education-industry partnership;
  • highlighting modern communication tools and approaches able to support networking, partnership and effective work based learning.


The benefits of a partnership culture are increasingly acknowledged, in both the public and private sectors, and centre on the potential for improved openness (transparency), creativity, flexibility, understanding and responsiveness within an organisation and its staff.


For those developing and delivering work based learning, strategic partnerships between education and industry provide an opportunity for the sharing of knowledge, experience and resources.


For individual learners, work based learning provides an opportunity to work and train with others, building relationships with tutors, instructors and workplace mentors alike.

In all cases, it is important to additionally consider the potential of new technologies to support networking, communication and collaboration.
