Southwark Council School Food Training Programme
Southwark Council asked us to design and produce an innovative school food management training programme for all school business managers (SBMs) in the borough. We took a co-design approach, empowering and enabling 12 Southwark SBMs to identify the knowledge and competencies needed to confidently deliver great school food. Importantly, we ensured the training was embedded in accredited continual professional development (CPD).
The long term aim of this project is to ensure pupils enjoy nutritious, healthy school food supported by a whole school approach
The Southwark SBM School Food Management Training Programme is a groundbreaking online modular learning course. It’s currently being rolled out across all 100 Southwark schools. Other Local Authorities now want to adopt similar training approaches, recognising the benefits of a holistic, co-designed, CPD-accredited training approach.
