Our new course: Jamie Oliver’s Home Cooking Skills

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.
Qualification profile:
• 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
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
