MU29-1.1 Explain why working in partnership with others is important for children and young people When working with children and young people in my setting it is very important to work in a team as it can be positive for the children to see. If I work well in a team I will enjoy my work and the children will benefit from that, it should improve their learning and development. It is also important to work in partnerships to build a relationship and to gain trust from the children and their families. I will learn a lot from working together such as the children’s likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, the way they need to be looked after and there education. Working with team members and parents will help me set boundaries and expectations of behaviour in setting. The children will learn what is acceptable behaviour which will make them feel secure. It is important to work in partnership with others because all agencies can share information and concerns to create a holistic view about children and young people in their care when any need arises, to help to keep the children safe from harm and promote their welfare, to diagnose a special need quickly in children and get the help that is needed to the child/family as soon as possible without confusing the child or their families. And as a pre-school setting it is good to know that I am not on my own if any concerns should arise about a child in the setting and that specialist help is available to all the children and young people if required. Partnership can be formed between a number of individuals, agencies or organisations with a shared interest. Partnerships are often formed to address specific issues and have a common reason for working together and may often formed to target a short or long term issues . In order to achieve a good partnership partners need to communicate, co-ordinate, co- operate.
