Welcome to the Teaching Primary Food and Nutrition (TPFN) programme, which has been developed to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to teach high quality food and nutrition lessons, and inspire you to champion a whole school approach to food.
TPFN is a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme just for you, the busy primary teacher or teaching assistant. While teaching food and nutrition may take-up a relatively small part of the curriculum, it does have some unique management issues and teaching approaches which need to be carefully considered, for example, managing and teaching practical cooking classes.
Through this programme, the overall aim is to build your confidence and competence in teaching food and nutrition, whether you are new to the profession, or have been teaching, or working in schools, for a while (we can all learn something new). This programme formalises and supports professional learning around food and nutrition teaching.
