Two documents of interest to teachers involved in food education have recently been published:
Support for primary schools to implement the requirements for food teaching within the national Curriculum for Design and Technology (D&T) in England and the Core Competences for Children and Young People
Support for secondary schools to implement the requirements for food teaching within the new National Curriculum for Design and technology (D&T) in England, the GCSE Food preparation and Nutrition and the Core Competences for Children and Young People.
For both stages of education the framework is to be used:
- to review and plan courses for trainee teachers and set out expectations for qualified teacher status
- Audit current practice by existing teachers, supporting performance related development
- Support professional reviews with colleagues
- Plan and run professional training course to support best practice
These resources are part of part of the School Food initiative.
