LEVEL 1 FOOD TECHNOLOGY 1TECF   

What is this course about? Food Technology focuses on developing and creating food products through research and practical trials. It involves a  rich variety of learning experiences, leading to a wide range of career opportunities. Design briefs utilised are based on  realistic scenarios offering thought provoking situations and are designed to encourage and challenge the individual to  achieve their best.     Each student will be expected to seek individual, innovative solutions in a variety of ways. Studying food technology in  this context develops understanding, sharpens perceptions of design and creates an awareness of the environment,  society’s needs and food trends. Emphasis is placed on creativity, innovation, technical competency and presentation. A  well equipped commercial ‘test’ kitchen and domestic kitchen, suitable for prototyping, are available to all students who  undertake this option.  What sorts of things will I do?  Design solutions to briefs based on recipe development and food product design knowledge. Food preparation and  cooking skills. Food safety and hygiene. Nutrition and health.
