Learning and Development
Learning and development has always been an integral part of the WI. As well as offering a range of courses at our own adult residential centre, Denman, we also provide training and courses specifically for WI members.
A range of roles are available for WI members to undertake either for the NFWI or within their local federation. These include:
WI Advisers are responsible for forming, suspending and closing WIs as well as making sure members are aware of what opportunities are available to them within the WI.
Skills Co-ordinators encourage and promote the development of learning opportunities available to WI members, both locally and nationally, and act as an educational link between the NFWI and members.
Federation Representatives are volunteers within their federation who act as a liaison between the NFWI and members in promoting and raising awareness of sport and leisure, science and combined arts.
NFWI Judges are OCN qualified and have sound technical knowledge in specific areas such as cookery, preservation, craft, floral art and staging and interpretation and to act as an educator whilst helping to improve the standard of show entries.
To find out more about these roles please contact your Federation Secretary or the NFWI Unit on 01865 391788.
Denman offers a wealth of opportunities to learn new skills on day schools and short courses in the field of cookery, craft and lifestyle. The Denman range includes something for every interest, from curries, cakes and crochet to papercutting, photography and Pilates.
