KS3 Food Hygiene: Educator Training

These training sessions - aimed to increase educators’ confidence to teach food hygiene and safety; have been developed within the SafeConsume project.

These sessions are designed as an information reservoir, where educators can choose the information they need for their specific teaching situation, without needing to read all the slides.

Any educator can use these sessions:

  • School teachers (Primary/secondary school teachers, science teachers, RSHE teachers, trainers, teaching assistants etc)
  • School nurses
  • Educators of community groups (youth groups, cadets, scouts etc)

Overview and Links

This Powerpoint provides educators with an overview of the SafeConsume project and where the Educator Training sessions link with the lesson plans and additional interactive activities. Suggestions of how to optimise the student resources when delivering food hygiene and safety lessons, are provided. An optional pre and post questionnaire is provided for each session, for educators to assess their own learning.
