Welcome to Chocolate Education. For over 10 years we have been delivering a range of chocolate workshops for schools all over the U.K. We started out as the independent business “Chocolate by Design”, holding in-house workshops for children in the production area of the shop. Due to popularity and demand we now visit schools all over the U.K., enabling learning through an interactive, hands- on approach to education. To date we have visited close to 700 schools across the whole of the U.K.

Our principle teacher, and master chocolatier Derek, has a BSc in science. Derek draws upon his science background and experience running his handmade chocolate family business to bring a wealth of knowledge in to our custom workshops.  The students (and teachers!) will be amazed at how much science and history are behind those delicious bars of chocolate!


“Derek from Chocolate by Design had our children learning from the word go! His friendly manner and humour was utterly inclusive, ensuring that every child had a chance to share their new found knowledge </throughout the day. His enthusiasm is infectious and his passion for chocolate, fair trade and education is clear. A fantastic day for both children and staff.”

Brockwell Primary School, Derbyshire.



“It was our absolute pleasure to have you at our school.

The children (and adults) found the whole day really enjoyable as well as educational. You kept us all engaged right through and we will be able to take a great deal from what we have all learnt. All of the children loved learning and you covered so many areas throughout the day.

I would totally recommend Chocolate Education to anyone who is doing a similar topic. I am sure I will contact you in the future if I need anything!”

Danbury Park School, Essex.
