Formed in April 2012, the Training and Education Committee took over many of the roles of the former Amateur Radio Development Committee

What we do

  • Work with the Radio Communication Foundation (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
  • 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
  • Support the tutors with core training resources, such as a revamped Train the Trainers scheme, training guide and training resources
  • Electronics building class organised as part of Youngsters on the Air (YOTA)

  • Maintain a Yahoo! Group for tutors
  • Make recommendations and take action on any other training or education related issues
  • Organise UK participation in IARU Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) and organise YOTA events in the UK

Committee members are experienced and dedicated people who work in small project teams to deliver the various Committee roles, linked to RSGB operational objectives.

Progress is reported to the RSGB Board twice each year and an annual report is published in RadCom in advance of the AGM.

All Committee members have signed up to the RSGB Code of Conduct and Ethos.
