Hospitality & Catering Year 9

Level 1/2 Hospitality & Catering

In Year 9 students can choose to study a five week ‘taster’ session to give them an experience of the Level 1/2 Hospitality and Catering course. During the 'taster’ students continue to develop their practical skills and knowledge of food nutrition and the hospitality industry.

After completing the taster session students will prepare various dishes and study the nutrition of the food. They will also look at scientific principles, such as how raising agents can affect food.

The focus in Year 9 Food Preparation and Nutrition is to build on knowledge gained at KS3.

  • Continue to make students aware of the importance of health, hygiene and safety.
