Event Details

NEA 2-Together

Food Teachers Centre Community is running simultaneous meetings around the country to support the release of GCSE NEA 2 on 1st November.  We want to bring teachers together locally to support their planning and understanding of Non Examination Assessment (NEA) to help clarify any issues and share good resources to use.

These events will take place in first two weeks of November.

The focus of the meeting will be

-       discussing challenges presented during NEA 1, and approaches to marking and moderation of NEA1 (Food Science Investigation)

-       Understanding the NEA 2 Practical Test)

-       Preparing your candidates for NEA 2

-       Code of Conduct and regulations – what is permissible during task preparation, task setting and task taking phases.

This is a new community style meeting, which is less formal and more self-help than our training days or face to face events. But there is something very exciting about the whole country of food teachers getting together during this time to help each other, so we hope that you can join us.  We know that this is will great for your school results, your own CPD and networking.

NEA 2-Together Programme

The draft programme will include:

-          Welcome and light refreshments

-          A recorded or live presentation from Louise Davies and Food Teachers Centre Associates, with essential tips on NEA 2

-          Questions and Answers

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
