Fun, Learning, and Achievement

18 January 2018

Improving techniques and learning best practice were some of the skills that 16 YFC members picked up on the latest Train the Trainer course in the West Midlands. 

Participants came from Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, Derbyshire and Montgomery and will be taking back their new skills to develop training and deliver courses such as Club Officer training and Curve modules throughout their counties.

Everyone who attended the course passed and now has a recognised qualification that is certified by The Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL), which is a great addition for their CVs.

Megan Hadley from Pencombe YFC in Herefordshire told us about her experience on the two-day course.

1.    What did you think of the course?
I thought it was great. An insight to different ways to train people and also a great place to network and find out how other counties deal with different things.

2.    What new skills have you learnt?
A general overview about training. Different ways to train, different techniques and best practice.

3.    How are you planning to use those skills within YFC? 
I will be involved in delivering the Curve Modules to YFCs across Herefordshire.   

4.    Will the training help outside of YFC?
In my job role as a Product Manager for a Prepaid Card in the Payment Industry, I have to train clients on our system. This will help me with the techniques I use.
