I am delighted to introduce this edition of the Royal Navy UTC Affiliations Newsletter. The Royal Navy’s relationship with the UTC programme continues to develop, with many affiliates taking full advantage of the wide variety of enrichment opportunities offered by the RN UTC Outreach Team. It is always encouraging to see the enthusiasm shown by UTC staff and students during our major RN UTC Outreach events, namely the Junior Leaders’ Field Gun competition, Visit weeks and the Royal Navy Engineering Challenge.
Following recent recruitment, the RN UTC Outreach Team is now at full strength and I would strongly encourage all affiliates to utilise this resource in support of respective curriculum and student learning requirements, to enhance students’ overall learning experience. Through effective, meaningful engagement, the
Royal Navy remains strongly committed to the national STEM strategy, to all UTC affiliates, and to meeting the requirement for STEM-qualified professionals in the future.
I wish you all well and thank you for your continued interest in the Royal Navy and your engagement with the RN UTC Outreach programme.
