 Partnerships and Sponsorships

We run a very successful programme of student events, competitions and awards for our 280+ member schools each year. More than 26,000 students took part in our 2019/20 programme of student activities.

We are inviting Supporting Members and other organisations to submit proposals to deliver a student activity with us in 2020/21. Your proposal should bring expertise and new opportunities to our schools and support the development of COBIS students. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise your company profile across the COBIS network.

We are particularly focused on expanding our virtual offering to ensure our programme is accessible to as many students as possible in the current climate. We therefore welcome partnership proposals for virtual competitions or activities that align with our vision of engaging, challenging and inspiring students of all ages and abilities.

Proposal Submissions

To ensure we are working with partners that have rich offerings for our members, the partnership process is cyclical. The next deadline for partnership proposals is 31 July 2020. Please note, early submission is encouraged.
