At the 87th Annual General Meeting of The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association on the 10th March 2018, the membership passed a motion (OR2-2018) to enable the Board of Directors (BoD) to establish the ”Pipe Band College” from the current “Education Management Group” as recommended by the Education Officer (EO).

The objects identified within the Articles of Association of the RSPBA place an onus on the Association to “sponsor, support and maintain its own pipe band college, and issue certificates in accordance with its instructional courses in accordance with the Rules.”

The Education Officer will be working with the members of the Education Management Group and the BoD on a transitional plan which will including a schedule for the advertising of vacant posts to the membership.

The current Terms of Reference (TOR) and Role descriptions agreed by the BoD for the Pipe Band College have been published on the web site under the “Learning” menu with each (.pdf) document being accessible from the sub menu “Pipe Band College”, in response to questions asked from the floor at the AGM.
