Businesses partnering purposefully with students and their schools should be a normal educational experience for each student, anywhere in Australia, and starting early at every stage of education.

Students today are living in a rapidly changing world. Each student needs to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities, and the experiences and confidence to succeed in this complex environment.

Evidence has shown that school-business partnering does and can make a difference for students.

Purposeful Partnering offers a rich mix of guidance from different perspectives, with clear illustrations of practice and stories drawn from a multitude of sources.
