Food Technology

In Key Stage 4 Food Technology we encourage pupils to try food from a range of different cultures, learn and practice skills to enable them to become confident in any kitchen and to be able to cook wholesome and balanced meals for themselves and others.

Pupils work towards achieving the Edexcel Jamie Oliver Home Cooking Skills BTEC Level 2. The programme is coursework based with a practical assessment at the end.

Each lesson pupils follow the recipes as independently as possible. They focus on a country and cook dishes from, or inspired by, that country. The pupils also learn a little about the culture of that country by listening to music, looking at photographs, watching videos and learning about the traditions from that country. Countries that we focus on include: America, India, Mexico and the Caribbean.
