Westking and Food Teachers Centre collaborate to empower secondary school teachers

Monday 30 July 2018

 

Westminster Kingsway College and Food Teachers Centre  collaborated to deliver a three-day culinary skills course to secondary school food technology teachers.

40 teachers took part on the course, which delivers essential cooking skills, taught by Westking’s expert chefs, to secondary school teachers who often have no formal qualifications in the culinary arts. The course culminated in a celebration with certificates awarded to everyone.

Paul Jervis, Westking’s programme manager for the culinary arts, highlighted the important part food technology teachers play in helping create a future generation of professional chefs: “The work you do is critical to me. Inspiring students to see life as a chef as a viable career path. I take my hat off to you.”

Louise Davies, Founder Food Teachers Centre said: “The Food Teacher’s Centre have been so pleased to build up this valuable partnership with the prestigious Westminster Kingsway College.  The three-day course in Culinary Skills was super high quality with expert chefs and packed full of essential content for our food teachers.  For those teachers who have no accreditation and wish to certificate their progress, it is ideal.  We are so proud of over 40 graduates this year and pleased to be able to present their much deserved certificates.”

There was unanimous agreement among teachers that the course was a roaring success. Below are quotes from some of the graduates. 

“The course was one of the most inspirational things I could have done and the highlight of my year. You’ve given me confidence!” Anthea Baker.

“This course was amazing, Chef Francis was inspirational.” Julie Greatorex

“I have grown in confidence, met some really good people and had a lot of fun on this course. When is the level 2 one coming out?!” Jenny Whalley

“Plenty of tips, advice to give you confidence and great company of other teachers. Thank you!” Fiona Budd

“It was one of the best cooking courses I’ve been on.” Neil Bullen

“Really enjoyed this course. Learning some new teaching techniques I can use in school and at home. It was great to meet other teachers of food and realise you are not alone.” Helen Litchfield

“This course was informative and helpful but most of all improved my confidence to deliver practical demonstrations to my students.”
