Partnerships in the Community
Have you got a challenge or idea that you would like to explore further? Would you like an external perspective on a business or policy opportunity?
We may be able to help you with our new programme.
We support organisations in Oxfordshire and beyond through our innovative learning and experience programmes for Oxford students and researchers. Every year around 550 Oxford students and researchers work on nearly 100 client projects across our team-based client experience programmes. We help businesses, charities, community organisations, Council departments, arts and cultural institutions.
Covid-19 disruption means that we have had to pause our regular programmes: The Student Consultancy (TSC), Researcher Strategy Consultancy (RSC) and The Agency. After a successful pilot we are pleased to offer an alternative remote working programme, The Oxford Strategy Challenge (TOSCA).
The students that worked on COCO’s project through TOSCA were extremely impressive. In a very short space of time, they researched extensively and produced recommendations that we would have expected from a charity consultant with many more years’ experience. The students demonstrated passion and enthusiasm, worked together as a team and used their skill sets and interests to ask difficult questions. The results produced tangible suggestions to assist COCO with the development of our social impact process. I would highly recommend this programme and hope to use it again in the future.
