School Food Plan Standards launched

By August 3, 2015 News, Resources No Comments

National chair, Carrieanne Bishop, launched the Professional Standards for the School Food Workforce in front of 350 delegates drawn from across the school meals industry on 9th July 2015, at the LACA Main Event conference and exhibition.

There are over 80,000 people working in school food – making it a bigger workforce than the Royal Navy –and between them they feed 4.6 million children a day.

The School Food Plan recognised that the workforce faces a tall order: how to serve good quality, healthy meals that can compete with the high street, all on a tight budget and timescales each day. One of the actions in the School Food Plan is to set up a Workforce Development Group to “create a set of commonly-accepted professional standards, detailing, by levels of required competence or responsibility, what skills should be expected of school catering staff in different positions”.
