The Food Teacher’s Centre have been so pleased to build up this valuable partnership with the prestigious Westminster Kingsway College. The three-day course in Culinary Skills was super high quality with expert chefs and packed full of essential content for our food teachers. For those teachers who have no accreditation and wish to certificate their progress, it is ideal. We are so proud of over 40 graduates this year and pleased to be able to present their much deserved certificates. Quotes from teachers! “The course was one of the most inspirational things I could have done and the highlight of my year. You’ve given me confidence!”
“This course was amazing, Chef Francis was inspirational.”
“I have grown in confidence, met some really good people and had a lot of fun on this course. When is the level 2 one coming out?!”
“Plenty of tips, advice to give you confidence and great company of other teachers. Thank you!”
“It was one of the best cooking courses I’ve been on.”
“Really enjoyed this course. Learning some new teaching techniques I can use in school and at home. It was great to meet other teachers of food and realise you are not alone.”
“This course was informative and helpful but most of all improved my confidence to deliver practical demonstrations to my students.”
Look out for the proposed next course Oct half term ... See MoreSee Less

What gets monitored gets done!
Whilst OFSTED visited these 60 schools it is a rare OFSTED report that genuinely reports on the OFSTED criteria within the judgement on Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare:
• 'Pupils can explain accurately and confidently how to keep themselves healthy and make informed choices about healthy eating'
Actually, I have not seen one inspection report mentioning this, let alone a school failing because of lack of it. Is that because OFSTED inspectors are not trained to know what to look for?
Until they report on school food education at each Inspection, schools will not take this requirement seriously despite parents, government and health professional desiring joined up action on children health and well being.
