Food route – a journey through food
To help children and young people engage with the Core Competences, a series of focus groups and workshops were arranged throughout the UK. The original competences were rephrased in an age-appropriate way, and tested to ensure that young people understand what they meant and how they could achieve the different competences. The focus group sessions helped to gather feedback from young people about the language used, as well as the design.
What resources are available?
To engage young people aged ‘By 14 years’
and ‘By 16+ years’
with the Core Competences, a series of competence journals have been created. These act as journals of evidence, showing how young people engage with the competences in a meaningful way.
Further information and resources for pupils aged 7-9 and 11-12 can be found here.
