ASiT ITOG Representative


Applications are open for the role of ASiT ITOG Representative.


Background to ITOG

The Interface Training Oversight Group (ITOG) was formed in 2017 to allow the TIG (Training Interface Group) fellowships to fall under the clear governance structures of the JCST. This means that TIG fellowships have a robust accreditation, in line with GMC guidance and future-proofs the programme with Health Education England. The ITOG supersedes the TIG Chairs group, and oversees the work of the TIGs and their fellowships. The ITOG Chair has a separate seat on JCST Council, so there is a direct link between the administration of the Fellowships. 

Each TIG fellowship has its own committee that is responsible for the working of that individual fellowship, and each year the trainee gaining the highest score at interview is offered a place on that as the trainee representative.


Duties of ASiT ITOG Rep:

The ITOG representative will be representing TIG Fellows at ITOG. The ITOG Rep should liaise with TIG fellowship reps to allow any issues to be raised at the ITOG level.

All ASiT Council Members are expected to:

  • Comply with ASiT roles and responsibilities guidelines;
  • Distribute ASiT conference and ASiT official survey promotions via their LETBs mailing lists;
  • Undertake additional activities i.e. attend ASiT supported regional events and contribute to ASiT position statements;
  • Encourage new membership of ASiT.


Criteria for Seat


  • Current or past TIG fellows;
  • Current ASiT Member;
  • For balance, the ASIT ITOG rep should not be a Plastics trainee as they are already represented;
  • Ability to occupy the post for 12 months;
  • Familiarity with the issues surrounding fellowships and governance structures relating to them
  • The ITOG is initially expected to meet twice a year, but there may be business that requires attention via email or conference call in the intervening time periods.
  • The next meeting is 8th November 2019. It is crucial that the ASiT ITOG Representative attends this meeting.

To apply, please send 1 A4 side CV and a 500-word supporting statement to detailing eligibility for the post. The closing date for applications is Friday September 27th.
