Food and the Environment
Our professional learning course on Food & the Environment aims to improve your confidence in using sustainable food as a context for learning across the curriculum, particularly through practical action, outdoor learning, and Learning for Sustainability. Using food choices for individual health we explore how they can also be healthy for people and places elsewhere.
As teachers, head teachers and other educators work to secure every learner's entitlement to Learning for Sustainability, this Food and the Environment professional learning programme provides the opportunity to develop professional knowledge, confidence and skills in relation to the social justice and sustainability aspects of the GTCS Standards.
- Improve practitioner confidence in using sustainable food as a context for learning across the curriculum
- Inspire enthusiasm and curiosity to explore and reconnect with what you eat
- Promote enhanced practice in learning and teaching which supports children to develop their value systems about food and make informed choices
- Improve understanding of the wider context of our food systems and choices
- Offer practical ideas, resources and materials to support food growing, cooking and eating activities with young people
