Training and Education Committee
In April 2012 the RSGB Board decided to create a Training and Education Committee, which took over many of the roles of the former Amateur Radio Development Committee.
Role of the Training and Education Committee
The role of this new Committee is to:
- Work with the RCF in consideration of how the training structure is working and how it might be improved.
- Represent the RSGB at the RCF’s Examinations and Standards Committees.
- Consider how training might be extended to provide additional member benefits; “Continuing Amateur Development” or “After Advanced”.
- Investigate, with the RCF, different ways for training to be provided including possible extension of distance learning and internet based technologies.
- Develop mentoring within the hobby to aid progression and as a form of personal development.
- Better support the tutors with core training resources and a revamped “Train the Trainers” scheme.
- Make recommendations and take action on any other training or education related issues.
Following a process of inviting applications and interviews, the Board appointed Steve Hartley, G0FUW as Chairman of the Training and Education Committee. Alan Messenger, G0TLK, and RSGB Director, provides a link to the Board.
Committee members are being recruited and progress with Committee projects will be reported through meeting minutes. Names of Committee members will be published as they are appointed.
