Food, training, transparency.. GREAT!

In Rotherham attending a meeting, I passed Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food shop. I believe that the project was so successful that it has been continued by the local authority.

But what really caught my eye was the total transparency of the space to the main shopping street outside. I am always writing about transparency in learning spaces and celebrating what is happening inside. It's not very often you see it in adult learning places. It's just great! It's only a small preparation and cooking space but really great things happen inside - and can be enjoyed by those passing and help motivate other people. It's a great start for finding ways to promote and celebrate learning of all sorts. How will they follow this model I wonder. It clearly works!
