  • To discuss the basic essentials for a successful cookery class (e.g. paperwork, evaluation, food hygiene).
  • Discuss messages/ themes that could be incorporated into the sessions.
  • Identifying and address challenges in running a cookery course.
  • Provide opportunity to practice delivering a cookery session.
  • To raise awareness of resources/other training available to complement cookery sessions.

The course lasts one day or two half days.
