We know that not all teachers can get the release, budget or time to get out of school for face to face training.
We have been working hard as a team of volunteers over the past few months to research ways that we can bring you training on-line.This is great news for food teaching that contributes to a wide range of curriculum outcomes including those focused on health and well-being, those focused on national curriculum D&T and those focused on cooking and nutrition: Instead of reinventing your own curriculum statement about intent we suggest that you base this on the most credible research and international views about why we teach food and its role in the curriculum of all young people.1.Teaching food is MUCH BIGGER than the national curriculum – globally there is clear agenda from United Nations and the Rights of every Child that you can reference and use as your starting point for why food and nutrition is essential for every child in your school. Out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals – Food Education plays a pivotal role in Goal 2 on Hunger, Goal 3 on Good Health, Goal 4 on Education and Goal 6 on Water. We also suggest that you look at Public Health Local Authority – Health and Well Being programmes – with growing rates on obesity Food Education is often part of the regional plan that your school should be involved in.The winners received special certificates and their prizes, kindly donated by Tunnock’s.Lily is 15 years old and created a dish with Blueberry & Raspberry coulis, impacted to create centrifugal splashes, topped with crumbled shortbread and toasted coconut.A Tunnock’s Teacake Challenge entry group was set up on the Facebook platform and managed by Associate Suzanne Gray to facilitate the competition.The brief was to produce a plate with a focus on the presentation of a Tunnock’s Teacake looking for the most stunning plate created.For centres in England, please visit the Eduqas website.Pre-recorded online training is available to teachers who may have missed our 'Preparing to Teach' training courses.Food and Nutrition in our school will equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating.Our curriculum will encourage students to cook and enable them to make informed decisions about a wide range of further learning opportunities and career pathways as well as develop vital life skills that enable them to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and later in life.
