The FTPP programme and printed portfolio have been designed to help teachers at all stages of their careers to audit, plan and evidence their personal and professional development.

The printed portfolio contains a booklet outlining the programme and introducing the guidelines - Food teaching in secondary schools: A framework of knowledge and skills (PHE 2015). The booklet also considers what makes a great food teacher and what is a teacher's professional development journey? There is space to plan your own development needs and a chart on which to evidence your professional learning experiences.  

There are also four sections in which to store information and evidence:

Direction: In this section you should keep a copy of your initial audit, analyse your strengths and areas for further development, set learning priorities, and collect ideas and alternatives for your development, such as course brochures and on-line learning course descriptions.

Reflection: In this section, you should reflect on your own professional development journey including key successes in your current role along with a summative reflection at the end of your professional development cycle (perhaps every 12 months).

Connection: In this section, you should keep evidence of how you have been able to share good practice.

Celebration: This section should be a celebration of your achievements. This can be certificates from your courses and other items, such as appraisal forms.  Included is an evidence checklist which is also available as a Word document in the resources area of the website (accessible to registered teachers).
