FOD2

Level 2 Food Technology

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Knight

Food Technology will appeal to students who have a taste for food and design. This course offers a combination of practical cookery skills and new product development.

The course builds upon the skills and knowledge developed in Level 1. The emphasis is to continue to work on practical skills and increase the knowledge and understanding needed to design and create food products which are technically more advanced.

Students will be assessed on two main units of work: The first is developing and making a Lemon Meringue Pie and the second unit focuses on identifying a need for the development of a new food outcome. 

As with Level 1, this course requires a high level of commitment, as all the practical work for NCEA is assessed in class. There is a large proportion of research and design which must be completed out of school.  The external assessment is optional, therefore subject endorsement may not be available. 


Entry Guidelines

Students will need to complete Level 1 Food Technology to successfully progress through the theory and practical nature of this subject.
