Calling all Educators!

Monday, 28 September 2020
Countryside Classroom

As a partnership we are continually trying to expand the range of resources available and are committed to improving your online experience, so from today, educators will be able to produce their own user profile. 

Just register your requirements when prompted and the platform will begin to respond much more intuitively to better highlight the right materials for you. Overtime the site will tailor your experience better and make hunting for the right materials a much quicker and easier task.

We will also be conducting a comprehensive review of all our existing resources and are keen to know what other resources you would really like to see added in the coming months. If you have any comments or feedback then please email [email protected].

‘Fish in School Hero’ aims to ensure that every child gets a chance to prepare, cook and eat fish before they leave school. The three year programme aims to train over 400 secondary food teachers to be confident in preparing and cooking fish with students in their classrooms. Teachers will be supported by local Heroes: fishmongers, fish-loving chefs and fish suppliers, as well as other Heroes who will talk first-hand about their role in bringing seafood from the sea to the plate, highlighting careers and opportunities in the fish industry.
