All training is ticket only and payable IN ADVANCE. The Food Teachers Centre uses Eventbrite (as many organisations do) to automate the bookings via credit card.   When you book you will receive by email a full VAT invoice/receipt.


PLEASE NOTE your booking confirmation and ticket will be emailed to both the delegate and person purchasing. If you do not receive your ticket it is most commonly caused by typing your email address incorrectly, or it is in your SPAM folder. Please check your booking carefully. It is VERY important that your school finance manager supplies your full name and PERSONAL- SCHOOL email so that we are able to send you joining instructions and further details. If we only receive the ‘school office’ email address, we have found in the past that this delays information getting to you or information is not passed on.


If you have any queries, please ask via the Eventbrite site messaging, and leave your phone number or email so that we can contact you easily.  and conditions
