Fun, Learning, and Achievement

26 September 2019

County Chairmen and Vice Chairmen will get the chance to boost their leadership skills at a dedicated training weekend in November.

The ‘Equipped’ training weekend, supported by The Henry Plumb Foundation, promises to be an engaging weekend of learning, designed to support County Chairmen and Vices in their new roles and includes key sessions and workshops.

Held at Mount Cook Adventure Centre in Derbyshire, from 22-24 November, YFC members will enjoy some outdoor team building activities as well as spend time understanding their new role.

Skills sessions will cover topics on equipping yourself for leadership, discovering your leadership style, recognising the challenges of your role and how to overcome them with peer, county and NFYFC support.

There are also ‘Tools Workshops’ that will focus on the topics of supporting, working with and managing County staff, drug awareness, inclusivity and equality in YFC and agriculture and rural affairs as your YFC USP.

NFYFC’s Chairman of Council Katie Hall said: “This is a great opportunity for chairs and vice chairs to get to grips with their new role and to network and share best practice with others in a similar role to them.

“The training is positive news for Counties too as they benefit from having a confident and skilled leader in post to help guide them through the membership year.”
