Food is THE whole-school topic: adding meaningful and inclusive value to the delivery of key educational themes such as raising attainment, developing the young workforce, health & well-being and Learning for Sustainability.
The Good Food Champions partnership training programme takes practitioners on a ‘soil to plate’ journey: covering all aspects of food education from planting and harvesting, through manufacturing, to food preparation and eating.
Participants will engage with local experts and organisations, helping you to set up links in your area to enhance and sustain your own food-related practice and support you in championing food-related learning in your school. The programme is free and open to all teachers.
The course is delivered via four modules.
These modules are stand-alone, so you can opt to
a) complete an individual module to further your professional development, or
b) undertake all the modules and go for GTCS professional recognition.
Each module will last 6 weeks and counts as 2.5 credits (25 hours of learning).
This partnership-run programme will span the 2018-19 academic year and involves talks, visits, presentations and hands-on learning activities. Self-directed study is a key component of all modules, and there is a requirement to engage in your own time. You will also need to work with peers through co-learning.
The programme will run in the following areas;
Teachers out with these areas are welcome to engage, but the courses and visits will be set up in these local areas. Please bear in mind that face to face sessions will take place after school, so if you are looking to travel to the area please keep this in mind.
