HOSPITALITY AND CATERING LEVEL 1/2 VOCATIONAL COURSE
This is a new and exciting opportunity for our KS4 students to experiment the vocational award in Hospitality and Catering. This allows the learners to gain knowledge, understanding and skills relating to the Hospitality and Catering sector. This vocational qualification is most suitable as a foundation for further study. This further study would provide our students with the opportunity to develop a range of specialist skills that would support their progression to employment.
The Hospitality and Catering course is run over 1 year.
There is a very strong emphasis on practical skills and in mastering all aspects of food preparation, cooking and presentation of dishes. Pupils are expected to complete theory tasks to back up their practical knowledge and regular testing will take place to reinforce this.
Throughout KS3 the practical sessions include all aspects of developing skills that will allow the students to build ahead, helping them be confident to start the vocational course. As this course is not offered to year 10 pupils as of yet, they are still able to build knowledge, skills and progress by the time they are in year 11 through the experiences during Enrichments programs held currently during the school week.
