FOOD TEACHERS CENTRE is a UK based self-help group for secondary teachers founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced volunteer associates. There are over 5,000 active teachers in the group. It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. It is a one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help through authoritative and accurate information. The idea of a ‘Teachers Centre’ is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of Local Authority advisers, Advanced Skills Teachers, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.
The Centre utilises new technologies, we are a ‘virtual centre’ not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for.
The Food Teachers Centre is a place of:
- creative and innovative ideas and action
- practical solutions
- learning and sharing
Our experienced team offer a range of consultancy services at a national, local authority and school level including
- creating and writing new teaching resources for food education
- helping local authorities plan training events
- providing speakers and workshop leaders
- working alongside teachers to improve exam results or teaching
