Level 2 Food and Nutrition

Course selection for 2023 is not yet open. You can browse 2022 Course Information on this site but be aware it is reviewed before Course Selection and therefore subject to change

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Knight

Food and Nutrition will appeal to students who have an interest in culinary skills and learning more about nutrition. This course offers a combination of practical cookery skills and theory of nutrition and industry expectations.

This course will offer flexibility in individual course design where learners can take achievement standards and unit standards, however, the course will be run with a mixture of both.

The course builds upon the skills and knowledge developed in Level 1 but it is not a requirement. The emphasis is to continue to work on practical skills and increase the knowledge and understanding needed to work in the food industry and build a more technically advanced culinary repertoire.

This course requires a high level of commitment and attendance, as all the practical work for NCEA is assessed in class. There is a requirement for some study to be completed out of school.  The external assessment is optional, therefore subject endorsement may not be available. 

There is a course contribution of 120 to cover ingredients during the year.
