Working with Others

(Category: Key Skills Initiatives)
"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." - Henry Ford

This initiative focuses on encouraging students to collaborate with a view to achieving shared goals. This initiative offers opportunities for students to work collectively, co-operate and respect difference. It also helps schools to develop strategies to enable students to engage constructively to overcome conflict and develop active listening skills.

Schools engaging with this initiative may consider purchasing equipment to support undertaking project work, cooperative learning strategies (such as the Jigsaw strategy) or group debates.
