Dedicated training manager

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has appointed a new training manager to help ramp up work in the education, training and skills arena for the joinery and woodworking industry.

Tony Batchelor joins the BWF team following former membership and training director Dave Campbell’s departure.

Tony will be responsible for delivering on the BWF’s three core training objectives: increasing recruitment into the sector; maintaining and developing high quality qualifications and delivery partners; and fostering a culture of continuous learning in the industry.

The new role will focus exclusively on training and Tony will also support the development of associated commercial products.
