Event Details





Taste of Game and the Food Teachers Centre have come together to bring you training and resources that helps you teach the curriculum.

In 2017-18 this programme includes

-          Teacher training practical workshops

-          Downloadable teaching resources, recipes, suggested classroom activities and video

-          Student masterclasses led by qualified teachers

-          Registration for supply of local game directly to your school

-          On-line training and support

This training and programme is sponsored, you will be asked to make a very small contribution, and this it used to deter people from booking a 'free place' and then not being able  to attend.

A key aim is to upskill teachers in the preparation of game and supply schools directly with ingredients for cooking it. With training and support, we hope that you will use game confidently with your classes. The programme will match the GCSE and vocational course requirements so that 60,000 students will get a chance to experience how to prepare, cook and taste game before they leave school.

We hope that students will:

-          Understand ‘provenance’ and how game is reared, prepared and cooked

-          have tasted game, tried out some recipes and are familiar its taste, value and uses

-          take home a positive message about game to the family shopper/cook, including its nutritional benefits and uses in a modern balanced diet.

All training is mapped to the GCSE and vocational examinaition courses with a focus on achieving better marks in the practical exams, and is mapped against the Food Teacher Professional Portfolio standards


 Why teach about game?

It has a perfect fit with the new GCSE course and the vocational courses, where students demonstrate high level skills, such as preparing meat and where they are expected to understand how animals are reared and prepared. It also educates them about the contribution of seasonal, local and nutritious foods to modern and traditional British cuisine.  In the past, lack of ingredients prevented students from cooking game, so this programme will hopefully mean that thousands more youngsters will get to cook and taste it.

Food Teachers Centre (Founder Louise Davies)

FOOD TEACHERS CENTRE is a uk based self-help group founded by Louise T Davies in 2013 and supported by experienced associates. 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. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff.

The idea of a 'Teacher's 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 ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations.

The Centre utilises new technologies, 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, innovative ideas and action
  • practical solutions
  • learning and sharing

If you would like to join the closed facebook group (you have to be a secondary food teacher and reply to a message sent to you to prove who you are)

But you can also visit our website   and public facebook page



The centre is supported by a group of very experienced and high quality national and regional consultants/advisers, who offer training, advice and resource writing for food education in primary and secondary schools. Find out more about how Associates can help you.


Food Teacher's Centre Community is a community group set up to:


  • provide and promote unbiased and accurate information to support curriculum development and innovation.
  • support food teachers (including student teachers) to exchange best practice nationally and internationally.
  • support teachers and schools to develop and/or enhance a healthy living whole school community.
