FFL training

Food – a fact of life (FFL) courses are designed to support the training needs of teachers who teach food, based around delivering the curriculum. The courses build on the successful work of the BNF and AHDB working with teachers over many years, as well as work through the Food Teacher Professional Portfolio programme.

The FFL training courses are open to all teachers (trainee and practising) and teaching assistants that teach food. Training is a mix of free, discounted and paid-for. For a list of the latest courses, click here. 

FFL training is delivered by:

  • webinars: live online events to support specific areas of food knowledge or classroom practice (recordings will also be available for ‘catch-up’);
  • online training courses: longer training courses, where teachers can go through content in their own time, at their own pace;
  • practical workshops: small group sessions, focusing on the development of food skills, healthy eating or learning about specific food commodities and food origins;
  • conferences: larger face-to-face events, focusing on topical education or curriculum issues, ideal for networking and sharing good practice.
