Recommended Prior Learning

It is an advantage if students have studied food and nutrition or hospitality at other levels.

This course is intended for students who wish to pursue a career in the food industry. The course consists of industry based unit standards from Service IQ.
Students will learn basic cooking techniques that will provide them with experience to enter a Polytechnic and gain further qualifications or skills to gain entry level jobs in the local hospitality industry.
This is a creative and interesting course that allows students of all abilities to learn useful skills that are in high demand in the work force. Students will be able to trial these skills through work experience in the local community.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
