Learning Design and Technology Consultant

The starting salary for this role is £31,273 per annum for a 36 hour working week.

We have been cooking good food in schools for over 70 years. We are on an incredible journey, taking all the good things from our amazing past, adding a sprinkle of culinary magic and transforming our catering offer.

Twelve15 comes from our deep roots here in Surrey, the home of the Magna Carta that was signed in 1215 on the banks of the River Thames at Runnymede. This iconic great charter resonates with our own values in its belief of fair rights for every individual. It is our belief that every child has a right to good food.

We take our responsibility of influencing young people to make good food choices that will impact on their health and wellbeing so that they can enjoy long happy lives. 12-15 is also the body fat percentage that the world’s top athletes strive to achieve so our name also reflects how seriously we take the healthy body development of future generations.
