Staff development kit
The Munch & Move Staff Development Kit (SDK) is designed to up-skill all educators at your service about Munch & Move and help your service to have a whole-service approach to healthy eating and physical activity. Once completed this will mean all of your staff are Munch & Move Trained!
The SDK is intended to be used at a staff meeting to provide valuable information and an opportunity for staff to discuss activities currently happening at your service and any areas you would like to improve in order to achieve Munch & Move best practice.
It is recommended to put aside 2 hours to complete the SDK.
Once you have completed the Staff Development Kit at your service contact a Munch & Move team member to receive a Participation Certificate for all educators who attended.
