RAEng Grant Management System Applications 2018/19

Lynda Mann has supplied a range of documentation designed to help BEP coordinators with the new grant management system (GMS) on the RAEng Website. This is the process that will be used to apply and evaluate BEP bid in 2018/19. 

The Application Guidence and Step byu Steps can be used to guide you though the GMS. 

The BEP Annual Report pro-forma for GMS is designed to be used throughout the academic year to record activities - this will later be copied over to the GMS to provide your online completion report.

Guidance for the online completion report will be added later in the year.

RAEng Christmas Card Competition

The 2018 Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) Christmas card competition is now officially open!


An exciting opportunity has arisen for primary school children within our Barrow and Welsh Valleys Engineering Projects to design the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Christmas card for 2018. 


The card will be distributed to 2,500 of the Academy’s Fellows, to our contacts within industry and other charities as well as Ministers and others within Government.  We are very excited to be able to open the design competition exclusively to primary school children from our regional project schools.

These resources can be used to help you deliver the Christmas card brief as part of a lesson, as a cover lesson, a Tomorrow's Engineers Week activity or a follow up to the big bang project. 

The best 5 submissions from each school will be collected ready for submission to the RAEng ready for Christmas 2018.
