|Description||Records of the Educational Committee 1901-1917 and signed minutes of the Short Service and Educational Funds Sub-Committees 1911-1914. |
Short service workers were not considered as missionaries and went out under an arrangement between the institution and the individual but their appointment was subject to acceptance by the Standing Committee for the Short Service Scheme on behalf of the institution. On 15 March 1915, a sub-committee was formed to compile a memorandum on the Short Service Scheme; the Standing Sub-Committee was subsequently appointed further to resolution of the Educational Committee April 1911 to keep a record of suitable institutions, their requirements and what they could offer and to look for suitable candidates. The Honorary Secretary and Candidates Secretary were ex-officio members. Recommendations regarding acceptance and location of workers were approved by the Educational Committee.
The Educational Funds Sub-Committee was initially appointed 28 June 1911 to 'consider in detail the needs for educational funds and draw up a list of these to be included in the appeal for Educational Funds for 1911-1912'. Ongoing tasks included making recommendations to the Educational Committee regarding the allocation of grants for education work overseas including building of educational institutions overseas.
