Working in Partnership Training

Training from Voscur:

Are you struggling to form and maintain partnerships with other organisations? Do you find it difficult to manage conflict and get things moving with collaboration partners, or perhaps you just want to refresh your knowledge of partnerships?

Good partnership working takes time, but it delivers much-needed results at a time when available funding is harder to secure than ever before. You can easily learn the skills you need for partnership working in this month’s one-day training course from the experts at Voscur.

The National Lottery Community Fund describes partnerships as ‘organisations who share responsibility and influence with others, who have a shared set of goals and values, and achieve their mission by starting with the bigger picture rather than just what their organisation can do on its own’.

Whatever your experience of partnerships so far, join us on 27 June 2019 and you’ll be fully equipped for any potential partnership working with organisations in and around Bristol.

Course content

The course is suitable for beginners and those with more knowledge, and will cover:

  • Communication skills
  • Working to a realistic timeline
  • Challenges at each stage of a partnership
  • Negotiations
  • Conflict resolution

We know partnership working isn’t always plain sailing, but you can ride out the storms once you have the skills to be a proactive partner.

Why should you care about partnership working?

Good partnerships and collaboration will help your VCSE organisation become more sustainable and have a bigger local impact. By teaming up with like-minded VCSE groups, you multiply the people you can reach, and the funding opportunities within your grasp.

If you partner with private companies, the public sector or local authorities, you each bring your sector’s perspective and collaborate to deliver results that you couldn’t achieve alone.

A successful partnership might also lead to further collaborations, which means more income and project activity for your organisation. Partnerships can also generate good press coverage, raising awareness of all the organisations involved and their purpose.
