Food is much more than just something we eat. How we produce food, the technologies used, the waste we generate and the nutrition of the food we consume all have wide reaching planetary implications.
Working in partnership the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET), The Rowett Institute, Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Scotland and Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) are offering teachers and educators access to online training opportunities highlighting the importance of food.
The online training (endorsed by Education Scotland) is split into four main subject areas – 1. Food, Technology & Engineering, 2. Food, Health & Wellbeing, 3. Math, Big Data and food and 4. Food & Climate. The training comprises of presentations, teaching resources and references from a range of food education partners to help you learn more about food and its wider impacts.
There will be a webinar for each subject area starting with a Food, Technology & Engineering webinar focusing on the production of haggis, neeps and tatties which will take place on 20th January at 3.30pm. You can register for this webinar here
The online training site will go live in February with subsequent webinars running in February and March. To register your interest in these online sessions and webinars please click here.
