With our accredited ITT and CPD courses, you’ll learn how to engage your pupils with the food and farming sectors and how to run safe, curriculum-linked activities on a farm.
We provide accredited training days for teachers and educators to deliver the curriculum through food and farming experiences — both on the farm and in classroom settings.
The skills you’ll learn will help you deliver high quality education across a broad and balanced curriculum.
These training days can be offered as bespoke courses designed specifically for you and your school, working across all Key Stages at Primary and Secondary Level (including GCSE and A Level).
All training is designed and delivered by fully-qualified teachers from our team who know how to translate food, farming and the environment into practical training and ideas for teachers across all subject areas.

You are invited to join this day programme to gain increased awareness of the opportunities for teaching about farming within the school curriculum. It is aimed at ITE students and NQTs. The programme is divided into four sessions. The first three are classroom based during the morning. The final session takes place on the farm in the afternoon (or as appropriate at the trainer’s discretion.) At an additional cost, the programme is available for accreditation through the Open College Network.
You are invited to an afternoon’s CPD to learn how to enable the whole primary school to participate in a Science activity week which can be tailor-made to your requirements.
This half day session will introduce you to how you can enhance teaching across the curriculum using food, farming, farm visits and the many resources available.
