Introducing the Next Engineers Facilitator & Volunteer Newsletter

We know that facilitators and volunteers play a huge part in ensuring the success of Next Engineers. With you and your teams in mind, we've put together a newsletter with tips that will help everyone engage with students and stay up to date on the latest resources available to them.

New editions of the newsletter will be available quarterly, and we hope that they will be an opportunity for you to engage with volunteers throughout the year.
