Beef and lamb practical workshops for teachers in Northern Ireland

BNF is delighted to be working with the Livestock and Meat Commission in Northern Ireland to facilitate a series of beef and lamb practical workshops for secondary school food teachers. The workshops are free to attend for teachers as they are 100% subsidised by LMC.



The aim of the workshops is to provide teachers with the practical skills and confidence to discuss, prepare, handle and cook with Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured beef and lamb, as well as present final dishes attractively. Teachers will experience how easy it is to use beef and lamb in the classroom and learn about its role in a healthy, varied diet, as well as explore the Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assurance Scheme in context. Through the practical activities, aspects of cooking food science will also be highlighted.


Delegates will cook a number of recipes that could be used across the Key Stages, but in particular for the new GCSE Home Economics: Food and Nutrition. All teachers will receive a resource pack which will include a variety of free materials to use in the classroom along with links to supporting online resources. A certificate of participation will also be provided, supporting your professional development.
