Miller Research have been commissioned by University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) to conduct a feasibility study for the development of an Academy of Contemporary Food. The academy aims to adopts a deep and holistic approach to understanding all aspects of the food supply chain to build sustainable and regenerative food systems.
As part of this research, we are looking to test demand for a suitable Food Leadership curriculum to be delivered as part of the Academy. The University views this as a unique opportunity to develop a course structure which drives real change in the food system, and empowers prospective students to maximise their influence in the industry.
The syllabus would be based in the University and out on farm, in food factories or in hospitality, covering subjects such as food safety, nutrition and public health, team leadership, food sustainability, politics of food, diets and zero waste cooking. Therefore, we are wishing to engage with the public, private and third sectors, as well as students and other stakeholders who are passionate about food and farming and / or in a position to influence food systems.
The main focus of this survey is to gain a sense of what elements you would find most useful in a Food Leadership course, what experiences you would expect to have and what skills you would hope to get out of it.
The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and all responses will be anonymised in accordance with our data protection policy.
