The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts' Adopt a School Trust works with professional chefs and hospitality professionals to train them to deliver the Adopt a School programme in schools. The chef typically delivers three sessions in a school year to one year group, ranging from taste and sensory to practical cookery and knife skills, bread-making and front of house. Sessions can be tailored to the curriculum and different topics/themes.
1) Our cost-free sessions are delivered by volunteer chefs who give up their time to go into schools. As we rely solely on chefs’ goodwill, we can only offer a limited number of school places and we do have a waiting list of schools.
2) Where there is not a volunteer chef available or you would like a visit sooner, we can offer sessions delivered by one of our qualified and experienced professional Adopt a School chefs. For this option, there would be a cost involved but we try to keep this as low as possible. Significant discounts are available for multiple sessions or classes.
