Description

The first Food – a fact of life National food and nutrition conference for primary and secondary teachers will take place on 2 February 2019. The conference is aimed at trainee, new, non-specialist and experienced teachers and will provide insight into the national food and nutrition issues that impact the lives and education of children and young people. There will be presentations from experts in the fields of nutrition, education, food and farming, food science, classroom management and cooking.

There will be an opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and update knowledge to enhance teaching and learning of food and nutrition education for children and young people. There will be sessions dedicated to teaching pupils in the primary and secondary phases.

Representatives of the Awarding Organisations for 14-18 qualifications will also be attending on the day to answer any questions teachers may have.
