What are we aiming to achieve in the Food Technology Department?

This scheme of work has been developed to enable students to learn where food comes from, how to cook a range of dishes safely and hygienically and to apply their knowledge of healthy eating. Students will develop their knowledge of consumer food and drink choice, enabling them to make informed choices for a healthy diet and life style.

Hospitality and Catering offers a unique opportunity for students to develop their knowledge and extend their skills within hospitality and Catering in a vocational context. It is suitable for those who want a broad background in this area and for those who wish to progress to further education. It will offer valuable preparation for those entering the world of work.
