Home Cooking Skills is so much more than a qualification: it’s a way to share a critical life skill with as many people as possible. This is a chance to arm students with sensible, practical knowledge that they can take into the world and actually use. Whether they’re having a party, cooking for mates, feeding their future children or making lunch, they’ll be fending for themselves, saving money and using these skills every day for the rest of their lives.
• Consists of two single unit BTEC qualifications at Level 1 and Level 2
• Both qualifications are fully funded on the QCF and contribute to Performance Points
Free online Teacher Support Materials will accompany the course. They have been designed with teacher-ease in mind. They are user-friendly enough for those teachers without a home economics qualification to be able to teach, while at the same time providing exciting content for more experienced teachers and those who already have a good knowledge of food and cooking.
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
