Please note that this is a shorter version of the training taking place on Saturday 15 January.
Join Frances and Jenny for an after-school twilight of practical activity with a focus on food science, food skills and practical applications. Find out how you can build pupils’ food science knowledge and develop their practical food skills at the same time. Practise your own food skills too!
The training will be conducted virtually from Frances’ and Jenny’s kitchens – we hope you can join them. You will need space in your kitchen to undertake the practical work, as well as a tablet/laptop (which has a webcam) so that everyone can see you too. Full details will be provided.
As this training is being held virtually, you will need to provide your own ingredients, for all those that attend and complete the session, a £10 gift-voucher will be given to you to help with the cost.
Priority will be given to trainee, new, less experienced and non-specialist secondary food teachers. Teaching assistants and higher-level teaching assistants are also welcome to attend. Spaces are limited to a maximum of 20, so please only book to attend if you fall into one of these categories. Confirmation will be sent after your booking has been processed.
