Situation

As the Young Engineers Club Network continues to grow (currently over 1,500 clubs are registered) and we journey further along the path to our aim: of giving every UK school-age student access to regular engineering club activities, we recognise that we need to build in an increasing level of support to persuade those volunteer club leaders who feel less able to run a club that they too are capable, and that they will be supported and enjoy the experience. We currently use website based services to enable our staff (the club network is looked after by a team of two) to facilitate club activity by gathering in and distributing ideas to encourage good practice and give a platform to celebrate and publicise the successes of our clubs. However as we want to penetrate all socio-economic groups, we need to develop several different methods of support. The website cannot give the depth of support or the benefits of face to face contact which can be offered by fieldworkers. Putting a team of regional fieldworkers in place who can nurture their local club networks is the next step in both growing and sustaining our club network.
