The 600 Campaign is a brilliant example of how schools can, and arguably should, seek to proactively encourage businesses to invest in education. The Royal Latin has been working with local companies for many years, particularly in Phase One and Phase Two of the 600 Campaign.
The campaign strapline – Building the Future, Together – challenges businesses to play their part in ensuring that the education system is fit for purpose, and is capable of nurturing the skills that employers are looking for in young people.
Providing sponsorship and funding is only part of the story; the school works with each company to carefully listen to its own objectives and challenges, and then creates a partnership which provides opportunities to build mutually beneficial relationships. For companies, very often this means coming into school to give talks to students or help with projects; for students, it means powerful opportunities to hear about career opportunities and help solve real world business problems.
We are always looking to partner with carefully selected companies, and proactively build partnerships which benefit the school and our students, whilst also helping to meet the CSR objectives of local, national and global enterprises.
In July 2021, ek robotics pledged a significant long-term investment that enabled us to complete our £3m fundraising goal and open our Sports Campus doors in September 2021 with confidence. You can hear more about the partnership here >
Vitalograph, and owner, Old Latin, Bernard Garbe, has pledged support to both the Discovery Centre and Sports Campus, most recently match-funding student and corporate fundraising with a £20,000 pledge. You can find out more about the partnership here >
