Food & Nutrition
Developed in partnership with chef Jamie Oliver, our Home Cooking Skills qualifications are inspired

two single unit BTEC qualifications at Level 1 and Level 2.
Level 1 - Contributes to Foundation Learning provision
Focuses on giving young people the skills to prepare delicious and nutritious home-cooked food,
using fresh ingredients - as well as an understanding of the value of passing on cooking knowledge.
Level 2- Equivalent to half a GCSE
Develops the student's ability to plan and prepare a series of nutritious home-cooked meals for
breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner, and helps them understand how to cook economically.
