The course take place over two sessions.

Session 1:

  • How to justify a visit to your SLT and parents, it’s so much more than the curriculum links!
  • How to make sure you all have a safe educational and fun experience on farm (Safety and Risk assessment, planning programmes of study on farm)
  • “Ask a farmer” – live link to a farm.

Session 2:

  • Inspire and enthuse your students,
  • Bring your curriculum/exam teaching alive using food, farming and the countryside.
  • Finding farmers to work with, supporting resources, funding, projects etc
