Growing Teachers - Helping you to help your school grow
About Growing Teachers
Growing Teachers is about inspiring, supporting and empowering teachers, support staff, independent practitioners and volunteers to develop and run a school growing and/ or farming project successfully and sustainably.
Whether you are breaking new ground in your school or seeking to grow an established school project, this programme offers a complete approach to the subject suitable for everyone from novice to experienced practitioner.
We are delighted to launch our first course in the UK using a blended learning approach. The learning combines educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional online classroom methods. This is combined with assignments personalised to your own project which lets you work on your own and involves visits to other school and community gardens/farms and with other learners and mentors.
The Growing Teachers Training Course is delivered over ten weeks at the start of the spring growing season. Each week focuses on a different aspect of using plants or animals in schools to deliver key academic or pastoral outcomes.
We use a 2 hour interactive webinar per week, with presentations, discussions and activities, plus up to 2 hours independent study completing assignments based on planning and progressing your own project.
