This study was part of the HE Working in Partnership project which aimed to develop skills and attitudes amongst managers and union representatives in higher education institutions to enable partnership working to reach local agreements under the terms of the 2004 Framework Agreement for Pay Modernisation.

The research comprised a literature review, good practice case studies and the evaluation of pilot workshops facilitated by Acas in ten different higher education institutions.

The literature review, together with the other two elements of the project, identified a range of factors that could help or hinder the development of effective partnership working.
