Why did we start teaching the teachers?
Three years ago, we stopped teaching beginners’ classes to allow us time to continue researching and concentrating on our core mission of teaching healthcare practitioners. So, while The Sourdough School is a centre for the study of the nutrition and digestibility of bread, we are leading the way in the application of the most up-to-date research, and we do not have time to teach beginners how to bake anymore. This has left us with a huge waiting list, and after many years of teaching, I wanted to offer a way for my students to share with others the knowledge they have learned here.
So we decided to help our students to teach others how to bake by providing a support structure and BALM Teaching Licence. The BALM Teacher Support Pack is far more than a mere assemblage of resources and documents. It’s an invitation to embark on a journey of passionate teaching and constant learning; it is a robust support structure designed with the goal of nurturing your independent spirit while simultaneously offering a framework to operate within the established guidelines, systems, and protocols of The Sourdough School. It is also an invitation to stay as part of a community and be part of the systems change programme.
