School trip to Chocolate Collective
If you’re searching for a unique experience, a memorable gift or you’re simply an outright chocolate lover, then you’re in the right place. They offer sublime chocolate workshops designed to give you a fantastic introduction into the art of chocolate making.
Run by head chocolatier, Louise and her team, their chocolate workshops teach you how to make beautiful hand-made chocolate truffles, using the finest quality Belgian chocolate.
Their sessions work closely with primary and secondary schools to run educational, chocolate making classes; helping teachers deliver their National Curriculum studies across areas such as literature, history, geography and science!
Each session is a mix of demonstration and practical hands-on experience, lasting between 2 to 2.5 hours. Our workshops are held in central Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds, at the Novotel hotels; our accommodating hosts with excellent facilities.
A chocolate making adventure for schools
Yes, it’s true! Chocolate is on the National Curriculum and Chocolate Collective delivers chocolate classes and lessons to schools across the North West, West Midlands and Yorkshire.
They understand that often it is the practical and interactive sessions that can cement theoretical learning, so their School Workshops are the ideal complement to classroom teaching and are a real favourite amongst teachers (and kids funnily enough) for end of term treats.
In Primary schools, children learn about the history of chocolate and chocolate production from bean to bar, which covers subjects including geography, history and science. They may also study Roald Dahl and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as part of an English programme.
What to expect from their school chocolate workshops
Chocolate Collective run tailor-made chocolate making sessions relevant to the age the children. They work closely with teachers to ensure their teaching is supported and can do a short question and answer session on the topics of your choice too. All equipment, supplies and protective clothing are provided, and classes are run within the school timetable to accommodate breaks and lunchtimes. Dairy intolerances or gluten-free diets can be catered for, but their workshops may not be suitable for people who suffer from nut allergies, as ingredients and equipment may have been in contact with nuts.
