Good Food Good Health
Our comprehensive Good Food Good Health course, empowers individuals and organisations to implement and sustain their own cooking class programmes, supporting their clients to learn valuable independent living skills.
This Joint Award by REHIS and Cyrenians, brings together a wealth of experience and expertise focused on food and health. This course trains the trainers in the theory and practice, whilst delivering a full programme of cooking classes to clients from the participant's organisation.
A pre-requisite of the course is that participants hold a REHIS Elementary Food Hygiene certificate.
The course is delivered over two days in a training room and involves practical and discussion-based activities followed by a set of six practical cooking classes to develop confidence and hands-on experience.
Over the six weeks we support you every step of the way, provide all the ingredients required and work with you to consider how best to deliver sessions around your clients’ needs, whilst also gaining the practical experience and confidence to lead classes in the future.
What an enlightening course. As a parent I learned things perhaps I should have known, such as salt and sugar consumption. The weekly meal planner was an eye opener, the training brought it to life and made it relevant. I honestly think all parents/professionals should be given the opportunity to attend this training.
We strongly recommend 2 members of staff or volunteers enrol on the course at the same time to ensure a successful and sustainable delivery in the future. Prices start from £500 per person with reduced rates for group bookings.
Funding for this course may be available through Community Food and Health.
