As part of our Key Stage 4 provision, pupils get the opportunity to choose four subjects that they would like to study further during years 10 and 11. There are a dozen subjects to choose from. These subjects always take place in the afternoons and are much more practical in nature.
QUALIFICATION: AQA Unit Awards
Students in Year 10 and 11 will be able to follow the Unit Award Scheme. Each week there is a focus on following a recipe and being able to either work with a team or to cook independently. We work within the school Food Tech room. We will complement these lessons with lessons that focus on Food Handling; Safety in the Kitchen; Hygiene; Storing food carefully and being able to understand how food is sourced.
The key themes within the curriculum are:
- Food Handling, Preparation and Storage
- Basic Food Safety and Hygiene in kitchen
Students will need to successfully complete each section of the units through a range of tests and guided assessments. Upon completion and validation, they may be awarded a Unit Award. This session is aimed for those pupils who have an enjoyment of learning new skills; enjoy cooking; want to look at having a career in cooking or simply enjoy FOOD!
Pupils are assessed in a range of themes that cover the headings highlighted above. If the evidence has been achieved - this is submitted to the examining board to then be validated for a unit award in that area.
