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

This course is for students who have a strong interest in Food and Nutrition. There is an expectation that students will be motivated and have high attendance as much of the assessment is done through observations.

The course builds upon the skills and knowledge developed in Level 2. The emphasis is to develop more complex practical skills and increase knowledge and understanding of nutrition.

There is flexibility in individual's course design where learners can take Achievement Standards and Unit Standards, however, the course will be run with a mixture of both. 

As with Level 2, all practical work must be completed in class time under supervision. 

Scholarship can also be attempted in all Technology subjects. 

There is no external assessment, therefore subject endorsement may not be available. 

Alternative unit standard:  U.S. 13282 v6 Prepare, assemble, and present complex sandwiches for service in a commercial kitchen - 2 credits.


There is a course contribution of $120 for ingredients for the year.
