Train the Trainer
These courses train interested individuals to be Cookery Leaders.
At Health Champions we love to inspire new people to be passionate about cooking, and over the years we have trained hundreds of people to become cookery leaders themselves. This might be in their job roles (for example a teaching assistant, a nursery worker) or through a charity or voluntary organisation.
Our Cookery Champions 2-day Train the Trainer course empowers people to take an existing interest in food and cooking, and develop into teaching those who need more help to cook. The two days includes session on:
- Nutrition and healthy eating
- Nutritional needs at different ages
- Factors influencing choice of food
- Session planning and scheme of work
- Working with groups
- Introduction to food hygiene and health and safety in the kitchen.
Cookery Champions Train the Trainer courses are often run as part of wider programmes in the community, but is a really important element of developing capacity and skills. In addition to the 2 days we provide participants with resources and mentoring for the first 6 months.
