Thank you for your interest in the Food Teacher Professional Portfolio programme, brought to you by the British Nutrition Foundation and the Food Teachers Centre, with support from the All Saints Educational Trust.
Based on the Public Health England and British Nutrition Foundation professional food teaching guidelines, the aim of the Food Teacher Professional Portfolio (FTPP) is to enable food teachers, at all stages of their careers, to audit, plan, organise and record their professional development.
In order to ensure that the FTPP is a successful programme, it is important that expectations are shared and agreed at the start:
The Food Teacher Professional Portfolio programme will provide a comprehensive range of resources, training and events including:
Monthly online events, with downloads;
Practical food skills sessions, with recipes;
Face-to-face events, with classroom materials;
Certificates of attendance for all events;
Online resources relevant to the Key stage 3 curriculum (2014) and new GCSE content (Food preparation and nutrition).
Complete an online audit of your current knowledge and skills. It is important that this is an honest assessment of your abilities to ensure that any identified training really meets your needs;
Proactively engage with the Portfolio process and use it to plan and support personal training needs along with recording and evidencing professional development;
Complete an evaluation after every training event attended;
Complete a short online annual survey;
Update BNF on your progress, any success stories or information that could be used to inspire other teachers or form case studies.
Before you complete the registration form, please confirm that you agree to meet the expectations of the Food Teacher Professional Portfolio.
