Connecting Students With Organisations

To Achieve Successful Outcomes

OUR MISSION

The Student Partnerships mission is to connect students in higher education with individuals and organisations in order to help solve their business problems. A problem can be quite clear and well-defined or something to explore. Organisations can be large or small, well established or still in their infancy, for-profit or not-for-profit; educational or community based.

There are three areas in which Student Partnerships makes these connections:

The restriction is that projects can only be run during the teaching periods of the educational institution and for a student the project will be one of several subjects that they are studying. The great majority of these projects have had very satisfactory outcomes.

 

This could be a great opportunity for micro, start-up & small businesses and community groups.

Once we engage with your business we talk to you and determine:

  • Skills sets for graduates to be developed
  • Projects to be worked on
  • The business ethos and culture of your organisation
  • Graduates spend 2 days per week with us and 3 days with your staff
  • The business provides projects for the graduates.       This will provide useful outcomes    for  your    business while immersing   the   graduates   in    your   business   and   its   people  and help assimilate them into the   organisation.

Students/graduates       can   refine     their   professional  communication and language skills    in a risk-free environment by having the opportunity to practice in a job interview simulations. Through repetitive practice and varied    experiences,  you   will   be    fully prepared for formal interviews.

 

Students/  graduates     have    access   to thousands    of   unique      job     interview experiences with varying levels of difficulty, with    industry/role   specific questions that may   be   asked   in   the   Job      Interview Simulations.

WHY MIGHT I BE INTERESTED IN A PROJECT?

Students and recent graduates have a great deal of up to date knowledge, enthusiasm and creativity. All our project teams are closely supervised by experienced people who maintain a professional approach to the work and to client interaction with a view to achieving great outcomes for everyone.

PROJECT CATEGORIES

At this point in time our students are typically from the Business, Marketing, Finance, Design and Digital Technology areas which is reflected in the types of projects shown below:

DIGITAL INNOVATION

WEBSITE, MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA

These are among the most requested projects by our clients. A website is an essential   part    of   a  business in the digital age. If you don’t have one at all yet    or   if  your old website is looking tired     and     out    of date  this  is an opportunity to improve your presence. If you don’t have a marketing or social media plan, then this is opportunity to do   so – and  combine  it  with a new website!

BUSINESS ANALYSIS & RECOMMENDATIONS

How and/or   where  can  I expand my business   internationally?   How does my   organisation,  product   or service compare with my competitors? Where are   the bottlenecks  in  my  business processes? How can it be automated? What’s  the  best way  to   contact and survey my     clients?    I  need   CRM software, but   which one   is  the best  one  for  me?    These are the sorts of questions  our  students  can help you solve.

AND MORE...

Our students have   a diverse range of backgrounds     such     as Information Systems,        Marketing,       Finance, Accounting and so on. These skills be combined   and  applied  effectively  in areas which   may   otherwise  be very specialised  e.g.  engineering,  health, social sciences, the arts and so on. In fact,  many  of our projects have been conducted    with    clients    who have worked in specialised areas.
