National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs

Fun, Learning, and Achievement

06 December 2018

A chance to learn more about the challenge of rural leadership has been offered to one of NFYFC’s leading Council officers. 

Katie Hall, Vice Chair of NFYFC’s Council, successfully applied for The Challenge of Rural Leadership Course (CRL) through the Worshipful Company of Farmers. Katie will spend two weeks in January at the Duchy College on an intensive programme of management and leadership skills development and training.

The course involves hearing from internationally recognised speakers and guests from commercial businesses, not-for-profit organisations, government agencies and the armed forces.

The aim of the course is to provide high-achieving managers with the skills and capabilities to grow and thrive in continuously changing and increasingly challenging conditions.

As a Vice Chair of NFYFC, Katie is hoping the skills she picks up will help in developing the new strategic plan for the organisation – as well as be useful in her professional life as a calf nutritionist.

“Strong leadership is a must during times of change and as NFYFC embarks on its strategic review, this course looks set to equip me with the skills needed to support the Federation,” said Katie. “I am extremely grateful to the Worshipful Company of Farmers for the opportunity to develop my leadership skills and for their contribution towards the course fees, as well as the generous donations from other organisations too.”

The Worshipful Company of Farmers has given a contribution towards the course fees and Katie has also sourced additional funding from Gloucester Farmers Club, Moreton-in-Marsh Agricultural Society and the Central Region Farmers Trust so far.

Any organisations interested in supporting Katie on the course should contact NFYFC and the information will be sent on to Katie.
