The red meat industry has supported the teaching of food and provided information on the role of red meat in a balanced diet for over 20 years through its education service.
The Meat and Education approach is based on identifying and answering educational need. The programme supports both the practical needs of teachers and the development of valuable life skills in students, which benefits them in their lives outside school.
Meat and Education believes it has a responsibility to support relevant aspects of consumer and health education and the acquisition of other important skills such as industrial and commercial awareness.
Meat and Education publishes a range of teaching resources to meet the different curriculum requirements of Food Technology, Home Economics and Catering in England and Wales.
By involving teachers, advisers and students in the production of materials Meat and Education endeavours to ensure that the materials it publishes are effective teaching tools.
Meat and Education is proud to be a longstanding Corporate Member of the Design and Technology Association.
