School Farms Network Conference 2019

For the third consecutive year the School Farms Network Conference and Awards will be held at the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester, with additional support from the Ernest Cook Trust and the Bathurst Estate.

Whether you are a school manager, senior leader, governor or practitioner (teachers and parents) interested in providing hands-on learning environments to enhance teaching and learning, raise attainment, improve attendance and attention, and/or support pupils to access and succeed in a land-based future (scientist, vet, combine harvest driver, and hundreds of other low and high skill jobs), then this conference is for you.

Sessions will be both practical, topical, and an opportunity for you to learn and contribute at the same time. The programme includes presentations and workshop sessions that can contribute to your CPD on:

  • Access to higher education

  • Agritech

  • BTEC land-based qualifications

  • Edible plants back from the brink

  • Far East experience of school farms

  • Funding and income generation

  • Keeping legal

  • Keeping poultry

  • Nature-Friendly schools

  • NFU Farmvention

  • Preparing livestock for shows

  • Preparing turkeys for Christmas

  • Starting a school farm

  • STEM: feeding the world and inspiring new farmers

  • Technology, education and farming

  • Year of Green Action
