Creating Partnerships. A Handbook for Educators.
Iowa State Council on Vocational Education, Des Moines.
This handbook details a step-by-step process to establishing educational relationships or partnerships with business, labor, government, and community organizations. Worksheets are provided to help with this relationship-building process. Chapter 1 focuses on these areas: the why of a partnership, resources to support the effort, benefits for each partner, finding a partner, criteria for selection, approaching a prospective partner, and an agreement to form a partnership. Chapter 2 addresses these aspects of forming a partnership: assembling a planning team; defining expectations, roles, and responsibilities; building the relationship; defining purpose, direction, and accountability; and implementing partnership activities. Chapter 3 discusses the partnership evaluation--qualitative and quantitative. Chapter 4 lists activities to maintain the partnership. Chapter 5 outlines a number of challenges with suggestions to meet them. Chapter 6 contains a selection of active partnerships: Business Horizons, Young Apprentices--Building Trades, Conference without Walls, Project Paybac, Health Occupations Education, and "A Friendship." The partners, their contributions, and their rewards are identified. A resources section lists 16 national organizations, 28 Iowa and regional organizations, and 12 support materials. (YLB)
