Want to take your skills to the next level and make a real impact in YFC? Enrol on NFYFC's Train the Trainer course and learn how to inspire, motivate, and guide young people to achieve more.

Our course equips you with the knowledge to plan, deliver, and evaluate training, with a focus on Club Officer Training and NFYFC’s Curve modules. Plus, you'll earn an internationally recognised qualification from The Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL) – the Introductory Certificate to Training Delivery – a valuable addition to your CV!

Who can attend?

We recommend attendees have previous Club Officer experience. The course has been developed for current members and associate members who are interested in developing and delivering YFC training.

Staff members may also attend this course with the prior agreement of their County.

What will the course involve?

The course will be conducted at a level 2 standard (GCSE Level) and will include a full weekend of training. All course applicants must be comfortable working at this level and able to attend the full weekend.

Applicants must complete a pre-course questionnaire, which requires evaluation of your experiences of training and learning, and your thoughts on current Club and County Level training.

It is a requirement of the course that this assignment is fully completed before the start of the course.

The course will follow ITOL and NFYFC course requirements and has the following learning objectives:
