Everything you need to deliver the curriculum through food and farming experiences — both on the farm and in classroom settings.
We offer training days for teachers, including accredited initial teacher training (ITT) and various CPD sessions, covering all key stages. Or we can develop bespoke training for your specific needs.
With our network of trained farmers, we can help you plan and run safe, curriculum-linked educational farm visits and other days for your pupils in your local area.
Sometimes it’s just not possible to get your pupils physically out onto a farm. That’s why our network of trained farmers can also provide virtual farm visits for you to deliver as part of a classroom experience.
As well as bringing your pupils to the farm, physically or virtually, our team of teachers and educational consultants also deliver in-school sessions.
We provide classroom resources through Countryside Classroom, a database of free teaching resources that’s searchable by keyword, key stage and subject.
