Virtual Cookery Camp "Cook Like a Boss"

‌‌Five Day Event: 5th-9th April 2021

Cook Like A Boss Online is the first of its kind, a virtual cooking camp which involves 5 days of FREE cooking classes for you and your child led by the wonderful Chef Jeffers from Forestside Cookery School in Belfast.

Beat the lockdown boredom and learn some new skills along the way. If you were a bit nervous about including your child in cooking activities or you have had them alongside you the whole time, there is something in the camp for everyone. Give your child the chance to take the lead in the kitchen (just keep an eye on them).

The camp is aimed at children aged 9-12 years old. Anyone resident on the island of Ireland can take part. The camp will run from the 5th to the 9th of April and an email will be sent with a daily link to a cooking video for you and your child to cook along with at your convenience that day. 120 spaces are available to people from the Republic of Ireland and 80 from Northern Ireland.


This project has received full ethical approval from the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Life Sciences ethics committee at Queen’s University Belfast and is a collaborative project between Ulster University, St. Angela’s College Sligo (NUI Galway), Dublin City University, Technological University Dublin and the University of Newcastle Australia.

All places for Cook Like A Boss Virtual Cooking Camp are now fully booked. You can see the amazing creations from our participants by following us on Twitter

NMBI’s Inaugural Summer Series

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) is set to co-host five Summer Series events at five different college campuses next month.

As part of its remit NMBI’s Education, Policy and Standards Department oversees undergraduate and postgraduate courses in education bodies across Ireland.

This June NMBI is taking its drive for even better standards on the road outside Dublin and is jointly hosting five different Summer Series conversations at five college campuses. Each event will focus on a division of the NMBI Register, the future for nurses and midwives in those divisions and the educational opportunities for our healthcare professionals. The focus at each event will be on the professions, the challenges ahead and the opportunities to embrace change.

NMBI’s early evening events are being held at:

  • University College Cork (UCC) - Tuesday, June 7 - Children’s Nursing
  • University College Limerick (UCL) - Wednesday, June 8 - Midwifery
  • Technological University Shannon, Athlone (TUS Athlone) - Tuesday, 15 June - General Nursing
  • St. Angela’s College, Sligo - Wednesday, June 15 - Intellectual Disability Nursing
  • Atlantic Technological University (ATU) Letterkenny - Thursday, June 16 - Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing

The campus venues and times for the events will be confirmed in the coming weeks and shared on our website for all interested groups.

NMBI Director of Education, Policy and Standards, Carolyn Donohoe, said the Summer Series has been designed to facilitate  open conversations with the different divisions of the Register.

“We will have panel discussions, an interview with an inspirational leader in the field and a question-and-answer sessions with the audience at each evening event,” said Ms Donohoe.

“The Summer Series is a wonderful opportunity to take NMBI outside Dublin to regional college campuses; to discuss new innovations in nursing/midwifery and to examine how our professions can adapt and change in the years ahead for the betterment of health service users.

“We are extremely grateful to all five colleges who have embraced the idea and are working with us to deliver these events. Senior NMBI staff members will be in attendance, listening to our professionals about how they work now in 2022 and how they hope to work into the future.”
