- TEACHER TRAINING (Practical skills for GCSE and Vocational Level 1-3 courses)

- STUDENT MASTERCLASSES (led by trained Ambassadors)


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

This programme includes

- Teacher training practical workshops

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

- Student masterclasses led by trained Ambassadors

- Registration for supply of local game (usually pheasant) directly to your school

This training and programme is sponsored, but for teacher training events 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.
