THE FUTURE IS FOOD -TRANSITION YEAR UNIT
‘The Future is Food’ was developed by the Taste Council in collaboration with Bord Bia, designed by educators and is recognised by the NCCA (National Council for Curriculum & Assessment). It was initially designed as a Mini Company Unit for Transition Year, however, many teachers also feel that it works for other year groups as it develops skills such as team work, communication, decision making and leadership (the potential to evolve outside of this target will be examined for the academic year 2016- 17).
A core element of the programme is that schools will be matched with a local food producer or food professional, who will act as a mentor for the students, and this is why we are seeking regional mentors. A school visit will be arranged where you will share your experiences and give advice to students on their food project. A visit to your premises may also be organised as part of the programme if this suits both the school and your business.
