FoodForum Professional Development Courses


Ali Farrell has a 20 year track record of providing independent, quality INSET courses up and down the country.

During that time she has worked with a number of national CPD providers, in particular Mill Whart Training who ceased trading in 2010.

Ali is available for school-based consultancy and CPD courses and is happy to consider requests. She is currently offering the following courses:

  • Primary Food Matters
  • KS3 Food Technology on a Plate
  • Cooking up a Real Curriculum (a practical course involving food preparation activities that can be used with students back in school)

If you would like further details on these titles, would like her to run a course for your school/ cluster of schools in your area, or if you are a LA advisor with a CPD request please email her on ali@foodforum.org.uk to discuss.

Ali has trained primary and secondary teachers within the Food in Schools programme as well as acting as a Consultant to the Licence to Cook programme.

These high profile, national initiatives are government funded and aim to improve food education in schools. They ran until the end of March 2011 when funding was discontinued.

Ali has developed her own materials to support the Licence to Cook programme and the Programme of Study for food with the current National Curriculum. These are entitled OK2Cook and are published in the Curriculum Matters section of this site.
