Previous Partners

QTS is proud to have supported a variety of partners, these partnerships have helped the QTS brand become one of the biggest supporters of the UK sporting industry, right through from grass root local teams to professional teams and athletes.

Here are some of the organisations who spent some valuable years as part of the programme!

With the operation expanding in England, we decided we needed to find a partner near our English HQ that tied in with our other relationships. The brand extended their reach to the English Championship by becoming an Official Partner in 2015 with Derby Country Football Club as their back of shirt and shorts sponsor. In 2017, we signed up to be the Training Wear sponsor for the club. After 5 years in partnership we sponsored Derby one last time in 2020.

QTS had a strong partnership with Kilmarnock Football club from 2012-2020 as the principal sponsor of the club. The local community is extremely important to us and our strategic partnership with Kilmarnock Football Club helped increase the awareness of brand but also help some local sporting heroes. Through the years, we have supported the First team, Academy, Ladies and Community division as a part of the QTS family.

Miss Scotland is an institution for the country as we elect one of our most philanthropic ambassadors. We supported Miss Scotland from 2015 to 2017 and in that time the franchise raised thousands of pounds for charitable causes throughout the country. Beauty with a purpose, Miss Scotland must have Beauty, Intelligence, Fitness, Compassion, Enthusiasm and Style rolled into one.

YPI Scotland

QTS worked alongside the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), an active citizenship programme that raises awareness among young people about philanthropy, from 2018 until 2022. Run by The Wood Foundation in Scotland, QTS was the principle funder for YPI in Ayrshire.

Through YPI, young people from across a whole school year group work in small teams to actively research and understand the big social issues that affect their local community.  In each school the programme culminates with a grand final where the very best teams compete against one another to secure a £3,000 grant for their chosen local charity. Representatives from QTS were actively involved with the 19 schools taking part through Ayrshire, visiting schools and judging at some of the finals across the region.

Scottish pupils taking part in YPI work in small teams in their secondary school year groups, to consider the needs of their local community and identify a grassroots social service charity they believe can make a positive contribution. Having been guided on how to analyse the charity’s management and strategy, they are encouraged to build relationships with the charity and then exercise their skills in advocacy and public speaking to make a case as to why their proposed charity should be awarded £3,000.

Take a look back at our five years with YPI.
