Teach Food Technology: Teachers TV

The Teachers TV videos in this collection are those which have been suggested as part of the pre-course learning for the Food Technology in the Curriculum training course – part of the Teach Food technology national programme.

The films look at how schools have linked food technology at Key Stage Three with the wider government agenda about healthier eating and healthy schools.
