To help deliver its vision for primary schools, Open Futures has brought together a number of different partners, all of whom are experts in their field and who work with our schools to implement each of the Open Futures strands.
Working with our partners means that skilled professionals from the Royal Horticultural Society will provide sage advice and practical assistance to schools hoping to set up and run a kitchen garden, while our filmit experts can guide schools through the technicalities of working with film and young children and into the fertile territory of the learning opportunities that film making provides. Our partnership with the Focus on Food Campaign gives schools the opportunity to learn about the huge possibilities of cooking in classrooms, while Open Futures' work with SAPERE, the internationally recognised educational charity, has developed the askit strand to underpin the programme as a whole.
Open Futures schools benefit from the involvement of our partners at the implementation stages, through initial training and their assistance is then ongoing, both in person and through the Open Futures online community and interactive network, which of course includes other Open Futures schools.
So, if you become concerned about slugs attacking your vegetable patch, how best to edit your videos, or even how to make best use of your freshly harvested greens, advice and support are always on hand.
