National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

17 April 2013


The first event for the new YFC Trainers Forum launched near Swindon in April and 10 members shared their experiences and got fresh training ideas.

YFC members came from Hampshire, Cornwall, Berkshire, Hereford, the East Midlands and Sussex, and brought with them a diverse range of training techniques from each county, which they were able to share with the group.

Trainers discussed the strengths and challenges facing each county’s training programmes and the ways to improve these, as well as how to further strengthen National and Area training to best support YFC members.

The Trainers Forum is designed to offer extra support and guidance for anyone who delivers YFC training in their county, and provides a platform for trainers to share best practice and influence the way forward.

NFYFC’s Vice Chairman Claire Worden was one of the members at the Forum and she later tweeted:

“Great NFYFC Trainers Forum held near Swindon. Brill input and knowledge from members with lots of ideas!”

The Trainers Forum is open to anyone who has attended an NFYFC Train the Trainer or Advanced Train the Trainer course, or has been on their own county’s Training Techniques course.

The next event takes place on the 19th May in Huddersfield. Visit for more information and to book on a meeting.
