Welcome to the WI Adviser training. This e-learning is delivered as part of NFWI’s commitment to working in partnership with federations and providing additional support and guidance throughout the National Federation. 

This course has been designed to support you in your role as a WI Adviser to ensure WIs comply with the organisation’s legal constitutional requirements. Please note, in order to carry out the role of a WI Adviser you must have been appointed by your federation. If you haven’t already been appointed as a WI Adviser, please contact your federation to register your interest in becoming one.

This course also aims to make sure you will feel confident in undertaking your role, know where to access support when you need it and that you find being a WI Adviser a rewarding experience.

Undertaking this training will support charity trustees manage responsibly and protect the charity from risk, whether it is a new WI, an existing WI or a closing WI. 

The training is split into 7 modules:

  • Module 1: Structure of The WI
  • Module 2: The WI Constitution 
  • Module 3: WI Roles
  • Module 4: Opening, Suspending, Enlarging, Reforming & Closing WIs
  • Module 5: WI Meetings
  • Module 6: Policies & Procedures
  • Module 7: Effective Communication

The training should take approximately 3.5 hours and can be completed a module at a time in your own time.

At the end of each module, you will need to complete a short test consisting of 5 questions. A final test consisting of 10 questions must be completed once you have covered all 7 modules. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate of completion via email within 14 days.

Thank you so much for volunteering your valuable time as WI Adviser. Your support is critical to WIs and federations in creating an enriching experience for our members and for the generations to come.  

Please note this training is for existing WI Advisers and new WI Advisers. Upon completion, we recommend completing this training every 2 years to ensure you are up to date with all existing and new policies and guidance which are reviewed frequently by NFWI.
