Training and Education Committee

| August 9, 2016

Within the Training and Education Committee (TEC) relatively little conventional committee and discussion work takes place. Instead, much of what we do is based on project teams. With all members working towards particular goals within a team, everyone makes continuing contributions.

All TEC volunteers are associated with specific projects from time to time but there is an expectation that everyone on TEC is willing to assist TEC more widely, when the need arises. There are always a number of projects on the to-do list, so please do not be shy in putting your hand up.

If you feel you have something to offer and are willing to spend some time on moving things forward, please contact the current chair, Philip Willis M0PHI, with a brief note about yourself, what you feel you can add to the mix and any specific aspect of the committee you would be particularly interested in. Please email


Applications invited for RSGB Training and Education Committee Chair

Following the co-option of the current Chair, Philip Willis M0PHI to the RSGB Board, applications are invited for the role of Chair of TEC, the RSGB Training and Education Committee.

The Committee covers most aspects of radio-related training, other than those within the remit of the Examinations Standard Committee. Its interests range from encouraging new entrants into the amateur service, training trainers, syllabus review and roll-out, helping disabled amateurs and working with schools. Full details of the Committee, current projects and members may be found at:

The Committee is organised into Working Groups, each of which exists to deliver a particular project. WGs can be formed and ended in response to need: they are not a fixed feature of the Committee. TEC is a stimulating and rewarding activity.

Interested volunteers may contact the current Chair via to arrange a confidential conversation if desired.

Applications by CV should arrive with the General Manager, Steve Thomas, M1ACB, via email to by 1 July 2017.

Schools Link project vacancies

The TEC Schools Link project has vacancies for additional team members.

The aim of Schools Link is to find ways of supporting teachers delivering the curriculum, by providing additional help and materials for those places where radio examples help illuminate it. The focus is on teachers and supporting the curriculum, rather than directly on school students or on getting amateur radio into schools.

The Principia project, with 10 Schools contacting Tim Peake on the ISS using amateur radio, has given a major boost to STEM subjects and the RSGB are helping to build on that through Schools Link and elsewhere.

If you are interested in joining this team, please contact Philip Willis via describing those parts of your background which may be relevant, how they fit the project’s needs and why you think this is something where you would enjoy making a contribution.
