Hi Oli, We are sorry for not getting in touch sooner! We have discussed the three main points that you raised about our proposal and were thinking the following: For the increase to global reach, we were imagining a hierarchy system. This would be where we start with the UK and by building a foundation of our organisation could begin to reach out to schools and companies worldwide. By first reducing the strain on teachers within UK schools, the oldest sixth form students can volunteer to help the youngest years in the initial tasks and lessons to help their university applications. As our program grows, we would send out employees or now experienced teachers form the program to teach regions of different companies in the hands on learning that our organisation encourages along with supplying the necessary materials. These main local teachers can then return to their schools to apply the workshop to their pwn environment and continue the inspiration of engineering and positive global impact subjective to their environment. In terms on financing the program. We thought it best to aim for a variety of funds. Along with partnering with current charities and NGOs, our biggest link is our connection to industry. Therefore, we would also rely on cooperate responsibilities that dedicate a percentage of their revenue to give back to the people. This can also lead to industry sponsorship, government investment from their education sectors and private or public donations. As a brand we must clearly demonstrate the benefits that can be reaped by our program. Initially when our company starts up, we can charge those schools that can afford to pay for the program in order to subside the costing for less fortunate schools and countries. Finally, in response to who or what will decide which schools are partnered with what industries, we would turn this responsibility for finding the largest industry link to the school. We would provide resources and background of local large businesses that the students can see first hand account of real life engineering. On the other hand, the links between SMEs that promote a positive global impact and sustainability in their initial engineering journey will be chosen by our central company. A team of researchers can profile and connect school to entrepreneur. As our program globally expands, we hope to set up global offices that can hire a workforce that knows the local business and continue our main aim of students experiencing real engineering. To help with this transition, we can connect with the UK Department for International Development now part of the Foreign Office along with the UN such as UNICEF and their SDGs. What do you think about these details? We are not sure about how much detail we need in the final proposal in terms of school or company outreach or structure of our outreach? Thank so much! Michelle
