  • Financial sponsorship; any amount makes a difference and even £50 helps fund events that might otherwise not be able to go ahead e.g. funding events and courses run for teachers & students, funding competition prizes, funding the purchase of equipment for teachers & students to use.
  • Case studies on your company to support the curriculum
  • Teacher visits to update knowledge & student visits to see how industry works
  • Working as a mentor or coach for students & teachers
  • Providing design briefs & working as a client
