'A Day in the Life' Work Shadow Scheme 2012

9 May 2012 - 09:41 by michelle.foster

'A Day in the Life' is a free work shadowing initiative that provides an opportunity for staff in government and Civil Society to step into each other's shoes for a day and learn about how the 'other side' operates.

The aim of 'A Day in the Life' is to improve cross-sector understanding of the roles and responsibilities of staff within the public and Civil Society sectors, as well as the operational environments and wider contexts in which they work. By opening up dialogue between staff, this in turn will ensure improved relationships and policy-making.
