British Poultry Council Boosts Resources for Schools09 June 2014
UK – The British Poultry Council is to work together with the Farming and Countryside Education (FACE) in updating its resource materials for schools.
The update will allow all FACE’s stakeholders (pupils, teachers, the industry, Government and the media) access to the latest knowledge and expertise about the poultry meat sector.
These resource materials will be used in FACE’s activities with secondary school pupils to explain career opportunities, during site visits, seminars and conferences.
The BPC will continue to help FACE in its central aim to encourage secondary school pupils to learn more about a career in agriculture.
Andrew Large, BPC’s Chief Executive, said: “We are in full support of the work that FACE has done since its inception to encourage more young people into a career in this sector. That is why we have decided to work with FACE and integrate the careers and education pages of our website.
"We would like to work with FACE in its continued efforts to build a strong farming and educational community.”
Dan Corlett, FACE Chief Executive, added: "We’re really pleased to be able to produce resources for a secondary school audience, especially those that can integrate learning in the classroom, with young people’s exploration of future careers.
"As a rapidly growing business sector, it’s really important that young people are aware of the opportunities within poultry, and farming as a whole, and have an idea of how the industry operates. Working with BPC means we are able to tap into industry-leading expertise so that the materials are both relevant and current for schools."ThePoultrySite News Desk
