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
