  • firstly a welcome
  • a brief insight into the workings at GCHQ - known locally as "The Wireless Station"
  • Torque Law will then take us through the key employment law updates for 2017
  • We will close with an exciting session by Paul Shaw, recently Head of Performance for the England Women’s Cricket Team.

There will also be opportunities available to take a tour of GCHQ 'Y' Service Museum, not normally open to the public.

Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is one of the United Kingdom’s 3 main Intelligence and Security Services, the others being the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).

GCHQ’s main ‘Strategic Objectives’ are to provide intelligence and information assurance to the UK Government and UK Military on ‘Counter Terrorism’, ‘Cyber Security’ and ‘Serious & Organised Crime’. GCHQ’s headquarters is located in Cheltenham in a building which the local community has named ‘The Doughnut’ because of its unique features and works through an extended enterprise of various sites around the UK, particularly but not exclusively, Scarborough and Bude.

Scarborough is the oldest known Signal Intelligence station having first been commissioned in 1914, and serving both as a military (within the UK ‘Y’ Service) and civilian site. Historical records and equipment, and many other artefacts are currently on display in the Scarborough ‘Y’ Service Museum and you will have the opportunity to visit on the day.
