GCDA has worked in Greenwich for over 35 years

supporting the community to thrive through training & enterprise
support. We offer a wide range of
training for those wanting to start their own business, learn new culinary
skills, develop a food project or progress their business. Expert trainers with industry experience and
expertise are on hand to support you, ensuring you have all the tools you need
to be a success. Courses are
interactive, information and fun with practical hands-on activities, developing
skills needed to succeed.

GCDA also specialises in health promotion. We work with Children’s Centres to deliver Nourishing Nippers – aimed at parents/carers who are introducing solids to their babies; and Fun with Food – aimed at parents/carers and toddlers to encourage families to eat a wide range of delicious, healthy foods whilst bonding over a fun, interactive session.

The tutors bring the know-how, but also the energy and positivity. I’ve made the right decision choosing this course before committing myself to a business I have had no prior experience in.
