Suggests that the aim of cultivating closer links between education and business has become the accepted wisdom and practice in the UK over more than the past decade. The advantages of such education‐business partnerships are seen to be mutual, and most large and many smaller companies are now entering into them with immediate benefits to the local economy. Indeed one initiative by a larger company seeks to encourage smaller companies to become involved. It is becoming increasingly common for some evaluation to be undertaken of the effectiveness of such arrangements, but generally on a one‐to‐one basis. Presents an independent evaluation of one large company’s partnership from the perspective of the education side of the equation. Provides insights of the strengths and potential weaknesses of such arrangements, and makes suggestions as to how improvements may be achieved.
