The success of your National Skills Academy for Construction (NSAfC) project will depend on the quality of the relationships you establish with your key stakeholders.
These are the people who could use, benefit from, or help you develop the project, and could include:
- managers (especially dealing with recruitment, skills and training)
- local authorities (employment and skills contacts)
- local employment partnerships (LEPs)
- schools and universities (careers advisors; relevant course tutors)
- colleges (business or employment liaison officers)
- job centres and employment agencies
- training providers
- job seekers
- co-ordinators of other NSAfC projects.
To identify your stakeholders, think about anyone who may be affected positively or negatively, directly or indirectly, by your project. This includes people who may be interested in or can influence the outcome of the project.
You should also form relationships with co-ordinators on other NSAfC projects. See Reviewing, sharing and celebrating your experiences for more information.
