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.
This page lists a set of sample teacher training courses but there’s much more that we can offer. Our Regional Education Consultants can deliver these in their standard format, or we can work with you to tailor any course to be best suited to your school and specific needs.

Looking for particular ideas about how to deliver maths outside the classroom? Need support in delivering exam specification points, or even on to bring the whole school together around farming, food production and the environment?
As well as tailoring our sample training courses shown here to your needs, our team of Regional Education Consultants can develop bespoke training for your school that can be adapted to cover different durations, subject focus, key stages or types of activity.
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.
