‘It’s not just a wee cooking group’: Community cooking skills courses – train the trainers workshop

This Community Food and Health (Scotland) workshop will be held on Thursday 9 May. 1.30pm – 4pm (lunch 12.30) Stirling

  • Come and hear from three organisations who train people to run community cooking skills courses, on how they have cascaded learning from a CFHS realist evaluation of community cooking skills courses.
  • Share and learn from others who train people to run cooking skills courses
  • Discuss how community courses can be more meaningful for people attending them

You are welcome to attend this workshop if you:

  • already run cooking skills train the trainers courses (such as the REHIS ‘How to run a cooking group’ or your own course/mentoring activities)
  • are planning to run cooking skills train the trainers courses
  • manage, fund, or commission community cooking skills courses.

If you would like to attend, please email by Friday 3rd May. We will prioritise attendance from those we say we welcome. So please let us know why you would like to attend. Thanks.

Please note: this meeting is being held after the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) Food and Health Presenters update seminar. Please visit the REHIS website if you would like to attend their event.

Background on why we are running this workshop

  • CFHS completed a realist evaluation of community cooking skills courses in 2018. Rather than simply finding out if cooking courses ‘work’ the realist evaluation aimed to find out ‘what works, for whom, why and in what context’. Eight organisations were involved in the evaluation and a final report is available here.
  • Three of the organisations then went on to incorporate learning from the realist evaluation within their own train the trainers’ courses.
  • The three organisations were Fife Health and Social Care Partnership (Lyndsay Clark), NHS Grampian (Fiona Matthew) and NHS Forth Valley (Rhonda Archibald)
