HCC invites teachers to brush up their Food Education skills

Nov 10 2015

Secondary school teachers in south-west Wales are invited to attend a specially tailored course to help them update their practical skills, theory and knowledge to assist them with the teaching of Food Education for GCSE.

Hybu Cig Cymru-Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) offers places for up to forty secondary school teachers to attend a practical workshop held at Bryngwyn School in Llanelli on Saturday, 14 November 2015.

“This free session provides an ideal opportunity for teachers to update their practical skills, theory and knowledge to assist them with the teaching of Food Education for GCSE,” said course organiser Elwen Roberts, HCC’s Consumer Executive. “They will test three recipes to make dishes containing PGI Welsh Beef, PGI Welsh Lamb and pork from Wales using a variety of different skill groups, techniques and cooking processes which can be emulated in the classroom.

“Updated advice on food hygiene, food science and safety will be shared with the teachers and key facts about red meat, and the value of including red meat as part of a healthy, balanced diet, will be highlighted,” she said.

Activities will provide invaluable background and support for the new GCSE specifications, which will be explained by the WJEC’s Food Science and Nutrition Subject Officer, Allison Candy during the event.

HCC, working in partnership with Meat and Education, have developed a range of free resources, available for teachers to collect at the event. These include lesson packs focusing on red meat recipes that are achievable in a 50-60 minute lesson.

The free event will be held between 9:00am and 2:30pm. Spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis and teachers should register their interest by contacting HCC on info@hccmpw.org.uk / 01970 625050 or online at: http://meatandeducationcpd14nov.eventbrite.co.uk
