Register now for a Professional Development Seminar Days for Year 7 and 8 food teachers

We are pleased to invite Year 7 and 8 food technology and home economics teachers to our free Professional Development Seminar Days in Wellington, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki, Palmerston North and Gisborne.

In the video below, the Heart Foundation’s Food and Nutrition Manager Dave Monro talks about why attending one of these workshops is a great opportunity and what we can offer you at them.

Each seminar day provides food and nutrition updates on selected food topics such as sugar, fats and salt as well as a guest speaker. A highlight of the day is the interactive vegetable masterclass with Chef Asher Regan, featuring easy healthy recipes ideal for the classroom. There is also an opportunity for teachers to have input into the year 7 resources currently being developed as part of the Food Curriculum Project.
