About this Event


 ‘Fish in School Hero’ aims to ensure that every child gets a chance to prepare, cook and eat fish before they leave school. The three year programme aims to train over 400 secondary food teachers to be confident in preparing and cooking fish with students in their classrooms. Teachers will be supported by local Heroes: fishmongers, fish-loving chefs and fish suppliers, as well as other Heroes who will talk first-hand about their role in bringing seafood from the sea to the plate, highlighting careers and opportunities in the fish industry.

Supported by the Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust, Fish in School Hero is managed by the Food Teachers Centre and their volunteer team throughout the UK.

Register here to take part in the programme. We will send you further information, so do stay subscribed to Eventbrite to that we can message you.

What is the Fish Hero programme?

More information about the programme.   

The programme includes free access to an on-line training room which supports teachers through:

  • Lesson plans and recipes

A set of curriculum-linked, ‘seafood’ teaching resources and lesson plans, for use in KS3/4 classrooms across the UK. Tailored modules on five to seven different, key, seafood species, with information on basic biology, method of capture/farm cultivation, , sustainability, careers involved in delivering seafood to consumer, cooking methods and health value .

  • A directory of “fish advocates”

A diverse database of seafood advocates, willing to engage with schools and talk about seafood careers, face to face or remotely. We provide guidance for Advocates talking to classes.

  • Fish supplier relationships.

Locating regional seafood suppliers (fishmongers, catering supply companies, producer organisations, retailers, etc), willing to provide affordable product suitable for use in the classroom. This enables a “dating service” to match local schools with the best, local, seafood source, helping teachers plan.

  • Teacher Training 

We will provide hands-on skills development through workshop sessions remotely and face to face to build teacher confidence
