We should promote the training and teaching of ringers at all levels of skill and ability. We want to devise and organise and run courses;   commission and produce training materials of all kinds; and work in partnership with others to ensure this happens.

We are not complacent and wish to redefine our activities sharply during 2017-18.

Our work is varied: courses, mainly for tower leaders and teachers of ringing and publications are the major themes. Some members have specific projects: others also perform long-term roles. 

We’d welcome new members with the skills, attitudes and experience such as: 

• act as tutors on our courses and help create new ones
• write course material, create videos etc
• identify interesting or newsworthy items and write copy or update the web.
• play a part in help us understand what is happening and whatservice or product is needed.   
• Undertake generic roles such as chair, secretary, treasurer
• see a task through to completion  (Project management skills )
• think corporately inside the Council and work with other committees
• Work in partnership with people and service providers outside the council

Communication: inward channels  To be effective, we have to establish needs across the Exercise. We keep in touch with our partner organisations (ART, Whiting society etc.)

Communication: outward facing channels We publicise our activities and raise the profile of education in The Ringing World , on the web and elsewhere

People The Committee needs a total of 8-12 positions. 

Sessions We meet about 9 times a year, usually on a Sunday afternoon. This is about 4 times a year at a physical venue  and 5/6 times by conference on skype or by phone conference.  We have our own mailing list to discuss items, report actions andsound out opinions 

Any questions?  contact Tim Hine, Education Committee Chairman.
