Free online training for primary school teachers
We believe that teachers play an important role in helping to shape children’s food understanding. This is why we have launched an initiative to provide free online teaching food in primary school course. The training has been developed to ensure that teachers are confident, competent and motivated in delivering fantastic lessons that inspire children, and equip them for life.
The course is specifically created for initial and practicing primary school teachers. It is based on the requirements of the curricula in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the PHE Core Competences for Children and Yong People and guidance to support primary school teachers deliver food teaching in schools (PHE/DfE).
The course covers:
Each module includes a short test, providing you with feedback on your progress. On successful completion of a final assessment, a personalised certificate is created. The course will take approximately 5-7 hours to complete. You can complete the course at your own pace – there is no time limit.
The course is FREE to UK primary schools and those in primary teacher training only, please do not register if you are not a primary school, trainee or are based outside the UK.
Please complete one registration per school, we will send access details for all the teachers in your school indicated on your form. To register for the training, click on the relevant link below:
