INSET Package

How to use the TPFN INSET package

Our INSET package has been designed for you to use for your own personal development or as a whole staff, year group or team CPD package.  Why not run an after school or INSET day training with your colleagues focusing on food and nutrition in the primary curriculum.  You could watch a recording of a webinar from year 1 of the programme (recordings and PPT presentations below) or watch one or all of the seven NEW short videos focusing on healthy eating, cooking and where food comes from.

However, you use the INSET package it is always a good idea to reflect on the learning and identify how you will use the information to develop your teaching practice or enhance teaching and learning around food and nutrition in your school.

Below are two reflective documents that you could use. Remember to print them off and store them in your portfolio to evidence your learning and celebrate your success.

We have also put together a list of useful resources that support the statements from the Food and nutrition experience audit (which you completed on registration for the TPFN programme). Take a look at the resources and consider how they could support you further in developing your food and nutrition teaching.
