Professional development

Welcome to the Professional development area. Over time, documents, resources, presentations and recordings will be added to support your personal and professional development as a teacher, and teaching and learning.

Training is divided into four key areas:

  • FFL training - view and book different training opportunities;
  • PPD toolkit - support for planning, implementing and monitoring your own professional development;
  • Teaching and learning - providing advice and support around planning, managing and teaching, and knowledge and skills for teachers;
  • PPD newsletter - sign-up for our free professional development newsletter.


In 2020, six BNF Education Awards will be given to secondary school teachers from around the UK (with a background in nutrition, food technology, science or home economics) who have consistently championed food and nutrition education. This may have been throughout the 2019/2020 academic year, and/or the lockdown period (highlighting specific practice in difficult circumstances). For more details, click here
