LEAF/FACE Regional Consultants can provide suggestions for places to visit, especially farms, and can put teachers in touch with farmers who will go into school. Consultants also offers teacher training and student teacher training about how to use food, farming and the countryside in classroom teaching.
David has extensive experience of working with farmers and teachers. He has a background in outdoor education and works with farmers hosting school visits and helps teachers and student teachers to incorporate farming and countryside topics into their teaching. David has made innumerable presentations to school assemblies and has expertise in offering a carousel of hands-on activities in schools and at agricultural shows.
If you have ideas you want to discuss or just need to find out how FACE can help in the North East region, please get in touch with David. He'll be pleased to help.
