“A recipe for employability”

Students will have the opportunity to cook in a fully equipped catering kitchen wearing full chef’s whites.

In year 10 students will complete level 2 food hygiene certificate, some of the things we will cover include- looking at the laws, different types of bacteria, pest control, germs status, what personal protective equipment is and the importance of it.

 The level 2 certificate needs renewing every 3 years. Some past students have used this to work in cafes, pubs as glass collector, restaurants as waiters and in McDonalds, so this gives good employability options.

Year 11 students will complete a NCFE level 1 /level 2 vocational qualification using knowledge embedded in KS3 and from their food hygiene certificate. We will visit other hospitality establishments to help gain information and this opens windows of opportunity, for work experience opportunities within the sector.
