Food teaching in secondary schools: knowledge and skills framework

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.
