Food for Thought Education Fund Opens Phase 7

 

The Food for Thought Education Fund aims to improve practitioner confidence in providing progressive, high quality, skills based learning experiences which help to embed food education into the ethos of the establishment. It also provides an opportunity to plan and implement learning experiences which build sustainability and capacity for future development.

For the seventh year of the Fund, Education Scotland are interested in bids which will to contribute to this vision by:

  • Ensuring learners have gained understanding about food education and can apply their knowledge and skills in a progressive way.
  • Relating projects to the world of work, to reducing food waste and to learning through farm visits.
  • Improving outcomes for learners in ways which seek to eliminate the inequity that currently exists amongst learners from different backgrounds and from particular vulnerable groups.

Applications are welcome from early years and primary establishments, and secondary practitioners from all curricular areas.

Funding awards will be up to £2,000 per project.

When applying as a cluster/associated school group each school may apply for up to £2,000. Each application will be assessed individually and funding awarded if successful. The total amount for food education projects will be subject to budget availability.

The deadline for phase 7 applications is 30 April 2019.
