Team Working

“Being part of a team is about respect and caring for one another. It’s about loyalty and like being in a family, you have your rows but you make up… you’re always there for them”

There are lots of rules at work – some written, some informal and almost hidden! But understanding the rules of working in a team is crucial to getting on in work.

One of the most important exercises we introduce in this section of the Facework website is the task of talking to adults who have got a job and asking them a range of questions about their jobs.  We’ve worked with students to design a very simple Ten Questions for Ten workers exercise whereby students come up with 10 questions to ask 10 different people in work (creating over 100 answers). Many of these questions will help open up discussions about relationships and teams. Questions such as:

  • How do you get on with your boss?
  • Do you like everyone you work with?
  • Has one of your work colleagues ever been in trouble with the law?
  • What happens when one of the team lets you down?
  • Have you ever had to sack someone ?

Most jobs involve you working in a team and when you start a new job it’s important to understand what the team rules are.
