QMS Education Sessions and Cookery Demonstrations
We all understand the importance of a healthy balanced diet and why Scottish schools have such a key role to play. QMS is keen to support educators in discussing areas such as healthy eating, food and farming, hospitality and other areas of the curriculum.
Our education sessions and cookery demonstrations can contribute to experiences and outcomes in more than one area of the Curriculum for Excellence.

MEAT VOUCHER SCHEME
The scheme provides the home economics departments of secondary schools in Scotland with a voucher worth up to £100. This is to spend on fresh red meat from their local butcher and for use by students on home economics and hospitality courses only.
FOOD EDUCATION SUPPORT
We have a range of videos available on our QMS MooTube Channel including: confidence with knife skills, cook along recipes, cuts of meat, the health benefits of eating red meat and sustainable livestock farming.
FOOD EDUCATION PARTNERS
QMS is proud to work with a wide range of organisations in promoting Food Education within Scottish Schools, as well as the opportunity for careers within the Food and Drink Industry. We recently worked with the Food and Drink Federation Scotland to highlight the potential careers with the Red Meat Industry.
Another new initiative is the Good Food Champions teacher training programme, led by the Royal Highland Education Trust and supported by a number of Food Education Partners. This GTCS accredited course gives teachers the opportunity to learn more about food and how it can be used as a context for learning across the curriculum.
