Food Technology is delivered by Ms Hayden and Mr File in our dedicated Food Technology classroom. We concentrate primarily on practical lessons with any theory work being directly linked to the practical session. We aim to:
Increase students knowledge, to make them understand the importance of healthy eating and how this supports their wellbeing.
We support students in developing a wide range of practical skills in order to enable them work towards becoming more independent.
Some students will have the opportunity to experience a professional cookery environment through our links with local colleges.
Older students may be offered the opportunity to study a Level 1 BTEC qualification in Home Cooking Skills.
We actively encourage the development of core skills through our subject by incorporating Maths, English and Science knowledge when appropriate.
Students have to show consideration and understanding of each other through increased communication skills, especially with regard to Health and Safety.
