LEAF Regional Education 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.
Debbie is an experienced and practising secondary science teacher who works with farmers hosting school visits and helps teachers to incorporate farming and countryside topics into their teaching. She is particularly adept at teacher CPD, understanding the pressures teachers face and tailoring her work to the needs of the school.
Debbie has farming experience and can offer insights into the farming cycle whilst developing interesting and relevant activities which can be applied to any phase of the education system.
If you have ideas you want to discuss or just need to find out how FACE can help in the South West region, please get in touch with Debbie. She'll be pleased to help.
