The 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, gives 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. This pro-active group has a community of nearly 5,000 food teachers taking part, encompassing over 40 different countries worldwide.

The Centre utilises new technologies such as social media and online learning and is a place of creative and innovative ideas and action, practical solutions and learning and sharing. The

Food Teachers Centre hosts regional and national events reaching around 2,000 secondary food teachers each year, works with all the major government agencies (Ofsted, Department for Education) and partnering with key industry representatives to promote its aim of better food teaching. Ongoing links with other organisations such as Catering and Hospitality colleges provide the opportunity for teacher professional development and to raise the profile of the subject in their own establishment.

Feedback from the group sums up the power of the community and how the Food Teachers Centre supports the busy food teacher. “Loved it and really wish we’d had the chance to stand up and shout a public thank you for each and every person who has shared resources, photos, comments and advice – it is incredible to be part of this community”.

What we love about it:

Providing a space for people to get behind a common purpose, and building knowledge from the network.
