Evaluation of Cooking Skills Workshops

                                     Do you deliver Confidence 2 Cook in your community and would like some hints and tips to enhance your evaluation?


Confidence to Cook Evaluation: 


The following evaluation tips have been compiled as a result of engaging with Community Food and Health Scotland in their food skills study group and more recently their cooking skills training pilot. 


As a result of this training a small group consisting of representation from Cook at the Nook within Cfiner in Aberdeen, The Garioch Community Kitchen, Inverurie and the Inkwell Training Kitchen in Elgin have participated in local workshops and invested time in developing their evaluation skills and testing these tools with a range of client groups. 



This 2 hour workshop will be an opportunity to hear about tried and tested methods of evaluating cooking skills. Hear from local practitioners on how they've developed and used their evaluation skills to enhance their cooking sessions. The informal workshop will allow you to look at planning your outcomes to achieve better results for your clients and recognising unintended outcomes and the value of reflection to enhance your practice. There will be light refreshments served and a chance to network and share experiences.
