The Characteristics of good practice in teaching food and nutrition (primary) course explores nine characteristics of good practice when teaching food and nutrition. The interactive course (based on the document of the same names) seeks to help teachers engage with the characteristics by providing:

  • key information about good practice in food and nutrition education;
  • teacher checklists;
  • case studies
  • links to supporting food and nutrition resources;
  • reflection questions and audit sheets for note taking.

The course takes around two hours to complete. On successful completion of the course, a certificate can be downloaded as a useful record of PPD.
