Good Food Champions: Professional Recognition in Learning for Sustainability

Food is THE whole-school topic: adding meaningful, place-based and inclusive value to the delivery of  key educational themes such as attainment, Developing the Young Workforce, Health & Well-being and Learning for Sustainability.

This GTCS-accredited programme takes practitioners on a ‘soil to plate’ journey: covering all aspects of food education from planting and harvesting, through manufacturing, to food preparation and eating. 

Developed and delivered by a diverse range of food education experts, the programme will span the 2016-17 academic year and involves talks, visits, presentations and hands-on learning activities; supported by self-directed study and peer learning. Participants will engage with local experts and organisations, helping you to set up links in your area to enhance and sustain your own food-related practice and support you in championing food-related learning in your school.  The programme is free and in 2016-2017, will be open to all teachers in the Clyde Valley area.
