Food Technology

At Hodge Hill College, pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum that will equip students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to cook and apply the principles of food science, nutrition and healthy eating. Our curriculum will encourage students to cook and enable them to make informed decisions about a wide range of further learning opportunities and career pathways as well as develop vital life skills that enable them to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and later in life. 

Our curriculum aims to develop:

  • Pupils demonstrating effective and safe cooking skills by planning, preparing and cooking using a variety of food commodities, cooking techniques and equipment
  • Pupils’ understanding the relationship between diet, nutrition and health, including the physiological and psychological effects of poor diet and health
  • Pupils demonstrating knowledge and understanding of functional and nutritional properties, sensory qualities and microbiological food safety considerations when preparing, processing, storing, cooking and serving food
  • Understanding and exploration of a range of ingredients and processes from different culinary traditions (traditional British and international), to inspire new ideas or modify existing recipes
